Mbombela - The body of an unidentified man in his early 30s has been found next to the R23 road between Balfour and Standerton, Mpumalanga police said on Friday.

"The body was found with multiple stab wounds," said Greylingstad police investigator Detective Constable Brian Jones. The discovery was made at 07:00 on Thursday morning.

He said no weapon was found on the scene and the motive for the killing was not known.

The man had no wallet, wristwatch or any identification on him.

"This guy was dressed in greyish trousers, a blue-striped long sleeved shirt and black shoes. He had short blond hair and blue eyes."

Jones urged anyone with information about the man's identity, or the circumstances around his murder, to contact him on 071 1826946.

    May he RIP and hope he is identified soon. Somewhere out there people who love him are frantic.

      It should not be difficult to identify him. We all had our fingerprints taken.

      It's becoming so annoying to read these comments. It is digusting to see the racial slinging. Why do some people need any excuse to vent their racial comments? They must write these kinds of things in their diaries and not on the internet.

    Yes, just another senseless murder statistic, to satisfy the bloodlust & urge to kill of some members of this dangerous country. It appears they have an insatiable appetite for this type of thing. Mindless morons, with little thought for life. Aptitude & skill for this type of violent crime appears to be on a very high level & it appears those with little ability in normal life have found their niche. G@tvoel now !

    The body of the unidentified man that was found is the body of my brother-in-law, the husband of my sister, a father of a 7 year old boy, a son to a dad, a son to a mother, and a brother to sister and brothers. A senseless murder for a corsa bakkie, a cellphone and a laptop! Your racist comments can be kept for yourself. It could be easy to raise another child as being a racist, by giving him the fact that he's daddy was killed by 3 black people, but we choose to raise our kids with love and forgiveness. So, you know what? The fact that you have had your fingerprints taken does not bring back the one that we have loved! You do not realise the value of a life. It is not something that you dispose of in the grass!

    This is really sad, I used to greet him in the mornings on the way to work. We are really sorry for your loss and hope that his wife and relatives find closure somehow.
