WINDHOEK, 04 AUG (NAMPA) – The body of a construction worker reported missing since Friday was found in the bushes behind Windhoek’s Rocky Crest residential area on Thursday.
Spokesperson of the City Police, Assistant Superintendent Cillie Auala on Thursday confirmed that the body of a 21-year-old construction worker, who was reported missing to the Namibian Police last Friday, was found.
According to the authorities and some of the construction workers building flats in Rocky Crest, the deceased allegedly vanished on Friday shortly after he received his salary at the construction site.
He was found stabbed in the chest and early police investigations indicate that an unknown person or persons might have ambushed the victim; knowing construction workers would be paid that day.
The perpetrators then allegedly dumped the body in the bushy area where people passing by on Thursday discovered it.
Members of the Namibian Police Force’s Serious Crime and Scene of Crime Units are now busy combing the area where the body was found for possible leads to the arrest of a suspect or suspects.
