A person walking by noticed the man’s body and alerted police about the grisly find at about 7am.

Kempton Park SAPS spokesperson, Capt Jethro Mtshali, told EXPRESS the man was estimated to be about 20-30 years old.

“The deceased had bruises on his face and lower body and rodents had already begun feeding on his hands and nose,” Mtshali explained.

“He was found wearing black trousers, a black t-shirt and a black lumber jacket that was branded ‘L & E Plant Hire and Repairs CC’. He was not wearing shoes.”

“We request the assistance of the community to come forward with information about both bodies.”
