Milnerton police ask for help to locate the deceased’s family

While walking along the dam behind the municipal hall near Waxberry Street in Dunoon on a Saturday, a boy prodded a plastic bag lying on the ground. Feeling something hard inside, he opened the bag to take a look and made a horrifying discovery: stuffed inside the bag was the body of a teenage boy.

Milnerton SAPS spokesperson Captain Nopaya Madyibi said the discovery was made at about 11.30 on Satureday 22 October.

Madyibi said the boy alerted people nearby.

“When the community members arrived at the scene they found the body of an unknown black boy,” he said.

The deceased is believed to be about 15 years old. No identification could be found in his possession, and the body was taken to Salt River Mortuary.

She said the police are looking for family, relatives, or friends of the deceased, and anyone with information should contact detective Warrant Officer Pienaar on cell number 0733 612389 and Crime Stop number 0860010111.
