The man is believed to be businessman, Roger Kebble. It was earlier reported that Kebble had shot himself.
Police said the body was found inside a vehicle on the corners of Montery and Upper Bebbinto roads in Bishopscourt on Tuesday afternoon.
"An inquest case is under investigation. No one has been arrested at this stage," said police spokesperson Constable Noloyiso Rwexana.
The Kebble family has already come through one tragedy when Brett Kebble was found to have died in an assisted suicide on September 27, 2005.
In 2010, Roger Kebble was found not to be well enough to testify at the trial for the murder of his son because of a heart condition.
EWN reported that Kebble's son Guy said that his father had been unwell and felt as though he was a burden.
