Cape Town - A gay man from Sea Point was reportedly killed over the weekend after he went on a date with someone he had met over the internet.
The body of Graham Flax, 65, was found under a duvet in the corridor outside his flat in the Costa Bravo apartment building, reported Die Burger.
He had moved down to Cape Town from Johannesburg over year ago.
“I can understand that the kind of dates that Graham went on made him vulnerable to robbery.
A man had apparently handed himself over in connection with Flax’s murder and was still to appear in court. "He had poor vision and he was one of those men who grew up in a community where homosexuality was suppressed.
I think it often appears as though older men have money." Flax was retired and worked as a volunteer at the Jacob Gitlin library.
But to be attacked with so much violence, that I don’t understand,” said Mc Laggan.
