Durban – Six months after 73-year-old Ken Price was reported missing, his body has been found and his neighbour has been arrested and charged for his murder.

KwaZulu-Natal police said Price was reported missing on December 6.

It was his family who raised the alarm bells after failing to get ahold of him.

Price lived alone in Oliver Leese Road in Malvern.

KZN police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Nqobile Gwala said Price was reportedly last seen on November 17.

“At the time detectives from Malvern SAPS proceeded to the victim’s place of residence, and on arrival they noticed blood stains but the victim was nowhere to be seen.

“They also realised that some of the victim’s belongings – including two bikes, DVD player, tools and other items –were stolen,” said Gwala.

On May 12, 2022, Gwala said, the police received information that a neighbour was advertising motorbikes belonging to Price for sale.
