Police investigate eShowe murder
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.
