A walker got the shock of his life after he stumbled on a dead body by the side of a busy road in Beacon Bay, Eastern Cape.
The walker said: “I initially froze and did not know what to do. Then I came to my senses and alerted a man parked nearby,” he said.
“It was difficult to recognise the man’s features, as the face was so decomposed.”
When the Dispatch arrived at the scene, police were still nowhere to be found.
A residential security company guard tried calling the police, but said he was told no police vehicles were available.
Ward 28 councillor Frederick Pohl was not aware of the discovery of the body but said there had been concern about cable theft on the road.
“I call it the ‘road from nowhere’ because it has not been completed and yet it is always vandalised. It is tragic that this is the second body recently discovered in the ward. The first one was in April.”
Pohl said most crimes in the ward were cable theft and housebreakings.
