Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Orrin Singh

ESHOWE po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a case of mur­der af­ter the dis­cov­ery of a body of a man in­side a parked ve­hi­cle in Os­borne Road on Tues­day evening.

Ac­cord­ing to King Cetshwayo Clus­ter Po­lice spokesper­son, Capt Mbon­geni Md­lalose, eShowe SAPS were alerted about the parked ve­hi­cle at about 8:30pm by Tracker, who re­ported that the Mercedes-Bens minibus had been hi­jacked in Man­deni ear­lier in the day.

‘Upon in­spec­tion, po­lice found the body of a 24-year-old man in the back seat. He had been shot once in the neck with what we pre­sume was a 9mm hand­gun.

‘Tracker fur­ther in­formed our mem­bers that the ve­hi­cle had been tow­ing a trailer found in the Ma­cam­bini area in Man­deni.’

Md­lalose said the po­lice mem­bers ques­tioned a man at the home­stead where the trailer was parked.

‘He claimed his friend brought the trailer there.

‘The friend was also ques­tioned and the duo could not pro­vide sat­is­fac­tory an­swers and were ar­rested.’

Both suspects will re­main in cus­tody as po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­tinue.
