Police are calling on witnesses to come forward after the discovery of a decomposing body on a farm in Philippi.

Police were called to the farm on Tuesday last week, says spokesperson Lieutenant Lance Goliath.

“A passerby discovered the decomposed body lying on the farm. The gender and age will be determined by a pathologist,” he says.

The cause and motive for the death is yet to be determined.

Police urge the community to report it if relatives or acquaintances go missing.


Anyone with information on this incident should call detective Constable Zane Kwatiyo on 073 550 0272 or 021 690 1527
