LAST Friday Khoapa village residents found the body of a man, estimated to be 45 or 46, dumped in a pit toilet.

The police have opened a case of murder.

SAPS spokesman Raphael Motloung said it is believed the man is from Lesotho. His body has been taken to a state mortuary in Matatiele.

“The body was seen by a woman who went to relieve herself in the toilet and saw the body wrapped in a blanket, and told the community and police,” said Motloung.

He said the body had a stab wound on the neck, but investigations will give details on how he was killed.

He asked anyone with information to contact the Maluti Police Station on 039 256 3800.
