THE SAPS found the body of an unidentified man in the Kokstad graveyard last Thursday. The deceased is estimated to be about 40 years old. He was found with stab wounds to the head and bruises on his legs.

“He was wearing a brown jacket and scotch-navy shirt. It is suspected the man was hacked with a bush knife on his head,” said SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo.

He asked people who have lost a relative to go to police station in order to identify the body that is being kept at a government mortuary. A case of murder is under police investigation. - Supplied.
