The bodies of three men were found dumped in bushes in Subanto in Pietermaritzburg at the weekend.
One of the bodies was allegedly found tied to a rope outside a junkyard on Saturday morning.
The bodies of the other two victims showed signs of serious injury and were found 200 meters away.
In the first incident, police found two dead bodies on Woodhouse Road, said KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Police spokesman Const Thingiswa Ngkubo.
Ngkubo said Alexandra Road SAPS is investigating the killings.
They sustained multiple injuries, and were both pronounced dead at the scene.”
