Missing Zimbabwe businessman found in car trunk
Police in Zimbabwe say a five day hunt for a prominent businessman ended with his bloodied body being found in the trunk of his car with a plastic bag wound around his head.
Police official James Sabau said the car was identified in Harare after a massive campaign of fliers pinned on trees and e-mail and media notices posted since Alan Banks, 52, went missing on Wednesday. A murder investigation has been opened, he said.
Sabau said the style of killing was very rare in Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe has no Western-style organized crime, he told reporters.
Banks was seen as a popular figure in the nation's small white community. Relatives told police they knew of no business or private grudges against him.
