Man's body found in informal settlement in Valhalla Park

Two people have been shot and wounded in an apparent gang-related incident in Wesbank, over the weekend.

The police’s FC van Wyk says the pair, aged 18 and 38, were ambushed by people who they apparently know, whilst inside of a house. No arrests has been made as yet.

Meanwhile, Bishop Lavis police are investigating a case of murder after a man, believed to be in his 30s, was found on an open field on Saturday, between the informal settlement called 8ste Laan in Valhalla Park and Robert Sobukwe Drive

The police’s FC van Wyk says the man was found wrapped up in a blanket with a broken plastic bag and rope around his neck.

‘’According to the informal settlement community the male is not known in that area. It is believed that the crime occurred somewhere else and the body was just dump amongst the rubble,’’ said Captain F.C van Wyk.

Anyone who is able to shed some light to the incident can contact Bishop Lavis SAPS or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
