Baby’s body found in Cedara College drain

2008-12-02 00:00

THE body of a baby, whose age could not be determined, was yesterday found floating in a sewerage drain on the Cedara College grounds.

Police spokeswoman Inspector Joey Jeevan said the body was too decomposed to determine the sex.

She said police were called to the scene by workers who discovered the body as they were flushing out the blocked sewerage system.

“While the company was busy flushing out the system they noticed the little baby’s body and contacted the police.”

Jeevan said police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death and that a postmortem will be conducted to determine the cause.

She urged anyone who might have information that can help police in their investigation to phone the branch commander of SAPS Hilton, Detective Services Inspector Johnson Sindane, at 033 845 6525 or 082 491 7022, or Crime Stop toll-free at 08600 10111.
