Half-buried body found in Soweto
Johannesburg - A half-buried body of a man was found near a stream in Dobsonville, Soweto, on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.
Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the body was found by workers installing electricity cables in the region.
"The police came later and uncovered the man. They then found that he was between 30 and 36-years-old and that he was hit by a sharp object at the back of the head," he said.
"While we were at the scene, a man came from the crowd [that had gathered] and said that he had known the deceased and that they were together earlier in the morning."
Makhubela said the man was taken in for questioning.
"We are trying to get the full details about what happened. What surprises us is that all of a sudden this man was just there, it seems suspicious," he said.
