Body found in freezer
Construction workers made the gruesome find, at a block of flats they were doing renovations
A decomposed body was found in a freezer in a Cape Town block of flats, the Cape Times reports.
Construction workers renovating the Senator Park building on Keerom Street, Dennemere, discovered the body on Tuesday, in a switched off freezer on the fifth floor.
Property manager Len Lowings said he thought it was “half of a sheep”.
“Police called me at 3.15pm to confirm that it was the body of a male. When I first saw it, I thought it was a half a sheep or something, not a person.”
He said the cleaning manager told the workers to dispose of the "meat", but security was called in when they spotted what looked like a sock.
It was not clear who the man was or how he got into the freezer.
A tenant who did not want to be identified told the newspaper the room’s tenant had moved out in July.
The building had long been a notorious drug and prostitution den which police often raided.
A murder docket has been opened.
