On Sunday the body of 71-year-old Preben Povlsen, a Danish national, was found in a busy area near the road at Eerste Steen in Blaawberg.
“Further investigation into the discovery show(s) that the body is that of Povlsen,” says police spokesperson Inspector Andre Trout,
According to Trout the cause of his death will only be known after a post-mortem has been conducted.
“A 35-year-old man who has been arrested on Saturday will appear in the Strand Magistrates Court today. The two females arrested on Sunday will make a court appearance in the same court on Tuesday,” he added.
Trout says after the positive identification of the body, the charge of abduction has been changed to one of murder.
