A decomposed body was found in a freezer in a Cape Town block of flats. Construction workers renovating the Senator Park building on Keerom Street, Dennemere, discovered the body yesterday, in a switched off freezer on the fifth floor, the Cape Times reported. Property manager Len Lowings said at first he didn’t realise what he was looking at. “Police called me at 3.15pm to confirm that it was the body of a male. When I first saw it, I thought it was half a sheep or something, not a person.” He said the cleaning manager told the workers to dispose of the “meat”, but security was called in when they spotted what looked like a sock. It was not clear who the man was or how he had got into the freezer. A tenant who did not want to be identified told the newspaper the room’s tenant had moved out in July. The building had long been a notorious drug and prostitution den which police often raided. A murder docket has been opened.
