Elderly man stabbed to death at his home

A 76-year-old man was found stabbed to death in his Edenvale home on Wednesday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said the man's neighbours contacted his family when they became concerned about his car being left out all night and at not seeing him during out the day.

"The family then contacted a security company who raced to the Gannet Avenue residence.

"He was found in a pool of blood on the lounge floor.

"Paramedics could not save him because of the extent of his injuries," Botha said.

Police were not immediately available for comment.
