A body of a man was found on Wednesday morning lying in the middle of the Indaba Lane in Muldersdrift, ER24 said.
Spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics were dispatched to the scene after security forces found the naked body.
“Paramedics assessed the man and found that he had sustained a serious wound on his neck and showed no signs of life. It was apparent that the man had been dead for some time,” said Meiring. “Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the man, and he was declared dead on the scene.”
Local authorities were on the scene investigating the circumstances leading to the death.
