The body of a man found next to the M3 in Constantia has still not been identified.

Diep River police spokesperson Warrant Officer Keith Chandler says the body was discovered after a woman travelling on the freeway reported that she had felt a thud against the side of her car at 06:00 on Wednesday 15 April.

He confirms police officers went out to the scene, but could not find anything.

Chandler says later during the day the body of a unidentified man, possibly a vagrant, was discovered with internal injuries. To date, the man has not been identified. A case of culpable homicide was opened.

Anyone with information on the incident or the victim’s identity is urged to phone Detective Sergeant Chris Roman on 021 710 7347/9
