Police are asking for help in identifying a woman who was found dead on Saturday 4 November.

Wynberg police spokesperson Captain Ntomboxolo Nqunqeka says a gardener was collecting compost in Wycombe Avenue, Constantia when he found a decomposed body in the bushes.

“It looks like the person had been sleeping there. According to the [forensic pathologists] the body is of an elderly woman. She was dressed in a black jegging with zipped pockets in front, a purple jersey, off-white jacket and she had a black and purple sports/duffle bag next to her,” she says.

Anyone who can help should contact detective Sergeant Collen Naude on 021 799 1400 or 071 403 0038.
