ANOTHER dead body has been found in Alberton, leaving people to wonder what is going on in our town.

Two men walking past the area reportedly spotted the body and stopped drivers of a Fox Security vehicle to inform them of the situation .

Soon after, around 12.45pm, the scene started filling with security, police and emergency services’ members.

Lindi Moloi, Brackendowns Police spokesperson, says that this is the second incident following this modus operandi in the area.

DISTURBING SIGHT: Police officers, paramedics and security personnel on the scene.

“Domestic workers in particular are walking through these veld areas and despite our warnings, they keep using them,” she says.

Any residents who have domestic workers are asked to please tell them (domestics) that they should rather take the longer route along the roads where there is traffic, or if possible, to walk in groups or to organise transport for themselves in order to get to work directly.

Captain André de Jager, cluster spokesperson, says they suspect the victim was raped and murdered, but cannot confirm as yet.

“Our K9 unit and specialists were on scene to try and gather some evidence that may help in the case, but unfortunately, came up with nothing,” he says.

“Please make sure that you always carry a form of identification with you and always tell someone, friends and/or family, where you are going and which way you will be going, That will just make things much easier for us to follow up when try to solve a case,” added de Jager.
