(Newser) – South African police are probing a possible gay sex link to the murder of white supremacist land owner Eugene Terreblanche. A teenager has admitted that he killed the farmer with a co-worker after Terreblanche refused to pay them wages. But police said they are probing all possible motivations, including gay sex, but did not elaborate, reports the Telegraph. Clothing of the older suspect is being examined for signs of sexual activity.

The suspect attorney said "something shocking happened," but offered no details. Terreblanche was found hacked to death, his pants pulled down. The leader of Terreblanche's Afrikaner Resistance Movement said any implication the farmer was engaged in gay sex was "unbelievable and completely untrue." (Read more Afrikaners stories.)
