The body of an unknown man was discovered under a pedestrian bridge in Plange Trim Park along River Road in Malanshof, in Randburg, on Tuesday.

A body was found in Trim Park.

The man who was dressed in a brown T-shirt and brown pants looked as though he had been assaulted.

His head was covered in blood and it looked as though he had apparently been hit by a rock and left for dead in the river section.

The body was discovered by a passerby who alerted the Linden police at around 7 am about the gruesome discovery.

Linden police spokesperson Captain Walter Spencer said the police were investigating a case of murder and could not rule out the possibility that the man was assaulted. The victim had blood stains all over his face.
