Cape Town - The body of a South African actor was found hanging from a tree on Sunday, Die Burger reported.

Nico Liebenberg, best known for his role in the Afrikaans drama series Konings, suffered from severe depression and financial problems.

According to the 59-year-old actor’s partner, Riana Jacobsz, the Police informed her that a passer-by walking his dog had spotted Liebenberg’s body close to his home in Pretoria North.

Jacobsz, who was still in shock and very confused, told Die Burger that Liebenberg had left their house on Thursday to go on a bike ride. When he hadn’t returned by 19:00 she reported him as missing.
