Rustenburg – A decomposed body found near Thekwane on Monday 12 October is suspected to be that of an alleged illegal miner.

The corpse might be linked to an incident that occurred on Saturday 3 October when Sibanye Stillwater security chased away a group of suspected illegal miners. One of the alleged suspects never returned home but the others assumed he had been arrested until they heard about the body that had been found. 

According to police spokesperson captain Elsabé Augoustides, once the forensic investigation has been concluded, they should be able to determine the cause of death.
