Police in Kroonstad, Free State, are investigating a case of homicide after a 73-year-old woman was found dead at a nursing home in Maokeng.
Restaurant staff found the woman’s naked body outside the building with dogs eating the meat.
Police spokeswoman Josephine Raney says nursing home staff claimed that when they left on Sunday afternoon, they left the deceased and her roommate in their bedroom with the door locked.
Rani says when they reported for duty Monday morning, the door was unlocked but not broken into.
The woman was injured, and her clothes were found next to the yard fence.
