A FORMER KZN man, Zenzele Mdadane Jr, has been murdered in a quiet town in the United States.

Mdadane, who attended Maritzburg College and lived in Hillcrest, was found dead in Butler Township, Ohio, on February 19.

The police report stated that Mdadane had been shot in the chest. A farmer found his body in a wooded area and called police, the local Dayton Daily News reported.

Mdadane’s father, also Zenzele, declined to comment, saying the murder is still being investigated and he does not want to jeopardise the progress.

The Dayton Daily News said police identified Mdadane through a tattoo of his name on his chest.

The paper said there had not been a murder in Butler Township in 13 years, and townspeople were shocked.

Mdadane, who was 25, matriculated from College in 2004. He was said to love rugby.

A spokesperson for the International Relations and Co-operation Department, Clayson Monyela, said the department is offering consular support to the family.
