MASVINGO – Police are appealing for people with a missing relative to visit Masvingo Provincial Hospital where the body of an unidentified man has been in the mortuary since November last year.
The body was found decomposing between Mucheke Hall and Mucheke Stadium in Masvingo. Police believe the man was murdered and then dumped in the open space because his body shows that he had boiling cooking oil splashed on him and he had some stab wounds.
A rope was tied around his waist and a pair of scissors was found a few metres from the body.
Police spokesperson Inspector Kudakwashe Dhewa made the appeal last week.
“The decomposing body of a man was found near Mucheke Hall last year and it is yet to be identified. Those with missing relatives should report to their nearest Police station,” said Dhewa.
The deceased was found wearing a blue work trouser and a yellow t-shirt.
The body was allegedly dumped well after the deceased had died as there were no blood spats or signs of a struggle within 10m of the body.
The body was dumped between a shrub and a rock about 30m from the tarred road and some 40m from nearby houses. https://masvingomirror.com
