Police are calling on the Grassy Park community to help with information on an unidentified body found in the Zeekoevlei bush last month.

The body of an unknown adult man was found bound with wire and burned beyond recognition in a large unused concrete pipe.

“We need local residents to help in solving the mystery since there are no leads yet. We are looking for family members or anyone with information,” says Grassy Park police spokesperson Constable Cell Strauss.

Police are now calling on neighbourhood watches to be vigilant whilst patrolling in their areas. Street and court committees are also urged to be actively involved in the continuous fight against crime.

In the meantime, police are appealing to the broader community to get involved in their reward system.

“This system allows any adult member of the community to become involved in the prevention of crime. A reward could be received by the reporter if crime and criminals are reported. All information will be treated as highly confidential,” he adds.

V Anyone with information on the unidentified body, should contact detective Sergeant Ricardo Goldsmith on 073 786 9205.
