The body of a 24-year-old man was found hanging from an electricity pole in Orlando East, Soweto on Friday morning, Gauteng police said.

“One of the kids, a neighbour… noticed a man standing by an electric pole. He went to ask his parents who it was and they found that the man had been hanged,” Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

“His hands were tied behind his back, his mouth was closed with tape and one of his ears were cut off. This was at his yard.”

He said police opened a case of murder.

“We do not have a suspect yet,” Makhubela said. - Sapa
