The police in Vaalwater have launched a manhunt for suspects involved in a suspected murder, following the discovery of the decomposed body of a middle-aged male person.

The body, in a state of decomposition, was discovered by a passerby along the Boshoek dirt road last Friday 13 April.

Limpopo SAPS spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said the passerby stumbled into the human body lying on the side of the road.

According to Ngoepe the deceased was wearing a light-blue long-sleeveed T-shirt, dark blue trousers, and a blue belt without shoes.

Ngoepe said the identity of the deceased remained unknown, as was the motive behind the alleged murder.

“The suspects in this matter are unknown and there is no arrest,” he said.

“Anyone with information which can lead to the arrest of the perpetrators involved in this murder, and who can assist in the identification of the deceased, may contact Detective Sergeant Oupa Koos Monyeki of the Vaalwater Police at 076 481 5356 or 076 733 0681 or the crime stop number 0860010111 or the crime line SMS 32211 or the nearest Police Station.
