Bloemfontein - A farmer has been murdered on his farm in the Memel area of the north-eastern Free State, the SABC reported on Friday.

Police said the body of 59-year-old Gert Engelbrecht was found in his bedroom on the farm Oshoek.

There was a bullet wound under his right eye.

His body was found after a neighbour reported a veldfire on the farm.

The police found a briefcase outside the homestead and two DVD players.

A safe in the house was open, but it is unclear if any firearms were stolen.
