The exact cause of death remains unknown.

Investigations are ongoing.

Last Wednesday, a man was found stabbed to death under a bridge on Warwick Avenue in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the man was found lying on the ground at about 8.30am. He had succumbed to his injuries.

The motive for the killing was unknown, and no arrests had been made.
