ON 6 February, at 7.10am, the body of a unknown black male, approximately 20 years of age, was found in Kynoch Road, Umbogintwini in the bush next to the road. There were multiple bruises to the victim’s body. At this stage the murder weapon used and suspects are unknown.

“The deceased was discovered by someone who passed by on foot and alerted the police. He was found lying face down, dressed only in briefs, which was partially pulled down.

“It appeared as if the deceased was assaulted somewhere else and the body dumped at the scene as there were no signs of a struggle or that the assault took place where the body was found,” said Amanzimtoti SAPS, Captain Charlene van der Spuy.

The motive for the assault, which could have resulted in the death of the deceased, is unknown at this stage.

A case of murder is being investigated by Amanzimtoti SAPS. The deceased was taken to Gale Street Mortuary for a post-mortem examination to be conducted to establish the cause of death.

The community are urged to come forward with any information to assist with the investigation and identification of the deceased. Contact the Amanzimtoti Detectives on 031 913 1324/25.
