Graphic content – Body found in Mineralia yet to be identified

The body that was discovered in a park along Hoog Street in Mineralia last Friday, has been found to be an adult male and not a child as initially reported.

It was found by a passer-by, Jason Nkuna, who stated that he was collecting discarded tins in the park for recycling.“I suspected something was wrong because the body was in an unnatural position,” he said.

The man’s trousers were pulled down to his ankles and he was lying face down.

“I called out to him but there was no response, I went closer and realised that he was dead,” said Nkuna.

He alerted neighbours who called the Emergency Services and Police. Upon the arrival of the paramedics it was confirmed that the man was deceased.

The body is being held at the Middelburg State Mortuary and he is yet to be identified.
