“At 5.30am on Sunday, he passed the area again and saw the bakkie still standing there, but that it was facing in a different direction,” he says.

The man called security who then called the police.

“They went to check the vehicle and found a dead body in the back of the bakkie.”

The body was covered with a blanket and a plastic cover at the back to stop the blood from dripping out of the vehicle.
