THE dis­cov­ery of two bodies at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions at Ndindima Re­serve out­side eSikhaleni over the last few days, are haunt­ing the com­mu­nity.

A young woman’s body was found in some bushes with a bul­let wound to the head on Satur­day, while the burnt body of an el­derly man was dis­cov­ered in an al­ley on Sun­day morning.

The young fe­male vic­tim was found dur­ing a po­lice search in the area af­ter her friend’s boyfriend re­ported the mat­ter to po­lice.

He told po­lice his friend, who was dat­ing the vic­tim, had asked him to trans­port them to a tra­di­tional healer, but when he re­turned there was no sign of the woman.

The man was alone and car­ried the woman’s bag. He acted strangely, caus­ing sus­pi­cion.

Po­lice rushed to the scene and dis­cov­ered the body within min­utes of the search.

Her boyfriend is still at large and a man­hunt is un­der­way.

In the sec­ond case, church mem­bers dis­cov­ered the burnt body of the el­derly man.

Po­lice said his naked body showed signs of hav­ing been burned with a tyre.

The man’s iden­tity is still un­known and po­lice are ask­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers to re­port miss­ing peo­ple to the po­lice.

Both mur­der cases are be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by the eSikhaw­ini SAPS.
