The body of a suspected robber has been discovered at the collapsed Tongaat mall in KwaZulu-Natal.

According to the The Star, the man allegedly robbed a woman of her necklace at a nearby shop before fleeing to the cordoned off construction site.

Colonel Jay Naicker told the paper that a passerby became aware of the body about two weeks later, because of a strong smell.

Two people died at the site on November 19, when a concrete slab collapsed on top of workers building the mall. Several others were injured. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
