Frankfort: Mafube SAPS request community assistance to trace the next of kin of an unknown deceased man after a shocking discovery on Thursday; 16 September 2021.

SAPS members received a complaint about a person lying on the bushes, on the R26 road that runs between Frankfort and Tweeling. On arrival at the scene, the body of an African male, which was partly decomposed, was found lying.

The deceased was found wearing a grey jacket, blue pants and brown tekkies and could not be identified since no identity nor witnesses were found at the scene to assist in that regard.

The deceased was taken to Sasolburg State mortuary where a postmortem will be conducted to determine the cause of his death.

An inquest docket has been registered for further investigation.

Community members with any information that may assist in tracing the deceased man’s next of kin or witness to this murder, are requested to call Captain Petrus Mthembu of Mafube SAPS at 082 466 8928 or 0741940084, or call Crime Stop at 08600 10111, alternatively send information via MySAPS App for anonymous tip–off.
