The mutilated body of a man, found in the Roodeplaat Dam in Pretoria more than a week ago, has been identified as Zeyn Khan.
Khan was reported missing at Florida police station on 29 November 2021, police spokesperson Colonel Dimakatso Sello said on Thursday.
Khan’s body was found last Monday after the Kameeldrift police received information that a member of the public had seen someone dumping something into the dam from a bridge.
“She [the eyewitness] notified the police, who immediately responded. Upon arrival at the said place, the police discovered a frozen body wrapped in a plastic bag. The body was mutilated, with the head, arms, legs and private parts missing,” Sello said at the time.
Police are investigating a case of murder.
