From incident till first arrest
Shaun Krull (48) was stabbed to death on Mitchell’s Bon Farm in Kwelera, Amatole (EC), on Thursday, September 19. His brother Alwyn Krull, owner of Sunrise Eggs, said: “Shaun was last seen at dusk on Thursday when he went out on his regular patrol of our extensive herd of cattle.
It appears he was ambushed at the feedlot by a number of people we suspect were involved in cattle thieving. Early on Friday morning we tried to contact him but both his phone and radio were off. One of his colleagues went onto the lands but could not find him or his bakkie.
He went to the feedlot and discovered the body of Shaun lying on the ground. He had been stabbed several times and it seemed as if the thieves ran over his body with his bakkie, which they then drove off in,” said Krull.
