The deceased, according to the police, is aged between 25 and 35.

Spokesperson for Sandringham Police Station, Captain Mohlaume Mamabolo said the deceased was discovered by a pedestrian who alerted the police.

“It is alleged that on the day, a pedestrian spotted a person lying naked in the veld on the corner of Kerry and Modderfontein roads in Rembrandt Park opposite Edenvale Hospital,” said Mamabolo.
“Upon investigation, [police officers] found an unknown male lying motionless.”
