Police in Parkweg, Bloemfontein, urge families who have a person missing, to come forward.

This is after they discovered the decomposing body of an unknown man lying next to the N1 road near the Onserust off-ramp.

The body was discovered on Wednesday (19/07) at 18:30 by construction workers driving past the area.

The deceased was wearing a red Manchester United T-shirt, a pair of grey trousers and white sneakers.

Capt. Chaka Marope, police spokesperson, says the man could be in his late forties.

“The preliminary investigations on the scene showed that the deceased might have died from natural causes almost a month ago,” says Marope.

Further investigations will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.

The police requests anyone with information or loved ones that have gone missing in the past few weeks to contact the investigating officer, Det.WO Anton Bauman, on 082-468-1624.
