A case of murder has been opened after the dead body of a man was found in a 210 litre plastic water container in Klipfontein, Tembisa, on the East Rand.

Tembisa police spokesperson Constable Patricia Mgijima said the body was found at about 6am along Masala Road on Sunday, Tembisan reported.

Mgijima added the man is believed to be a foreign national between the age of 28 and 30.

The deceased was wrapped in a carpet and his head covered in plastic. Investigations are ongoing.

In a separate incident, the dead body of a man was discovered in a vehicle in the parking lot of a shopping centre in Krugersdorp, on the West Rand.

An early morning discovery at a petrol station at a shopping centre in Noordheuwel drew a crowd anxious to see what was hidden behind an ambulance.

According to a homeless person who sleeps at the garage at night, a white Land Rover was parked there when he arrived at the garage. He described the blue face of the man sitting in the vehicle, with foam coming from his mouth.
