Western Cape police are appealing for information from the public following the discovery of a man’s body in Bonteheuwel, Cape Town, on Monday morning.

Police would not be drawn into speculation that the murder of the man was gang-related, but said that it would form part of the investigation.

The grim discovery of the body was made around 08:00 at "premises in Borriehout Street in Bonteheuwel", said police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk.

A murder case has subsequently been registered for investigation. Van Wyk said crime scene experts were on the scene, combing for clues.

Police have asked anyone with information about this incident to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
