Police trying to identify Milton Street murder victim

A man with multiple stab wounds was found dead in Milton Street, Scottsville.

Police are investigating a murder after an unidentified man with multiple stab wounds was found dead in Scottsville.

Residents found the body in a Milton Street yard.

Police say the man was killed at about 4am on Tuesday March 30.

“The man was nicely dressed. He is not from here. I had never seen that face around here before,” resident John Pakeur told the Northern News.

“It looked like he was stabbed elsewhere and dragged here. I say that because nobody walks around here at about 4am.”

Kraaifontein police spokesman Captain Hein Hendricks confirmed the killing and said no arrests had been made.

Anyone with information about the crime or the victim’s identity can call Sergeant Elton Luyt at 079 354 5054.
