Providing further details, he said police were alerted when the petrol station manager grew concerned about an unusual smell coming from a drain behind the premises, News24 reports.

“He (the manager) then went out to investigate and the drain lid was opened where a gruesome discovery of a half-naked body of a human being was made,” Mdhluli said.

“The police as well as other roleplayers were summoned to the scene. A murder case was then opened after it was established through forensic aid that the victim had been murdered. Police immediately began with the probe [and] a team of experts in the field of investigation was assembled.”

The body was determined to be that of Lifa Yinda, 39, who worked at the petrol station.
