Johannesburg - A thin foil sheet was the only thing that shielded the naked body of a man who was found on a cold, wet street in the Joburg CBD on Wednesday morning.
Occasional gusts of wind would blow the covering off, revealing the man’s legs and left arm as he lay on the corner of Commissioner and Frazer streets.
He was stretched out on the far right lane parallel to a dilapidated building covered in graffiti and surrounded by litter,with the stench of urine filling the air as a drizzle fell.
Police officers and security guards on the scene tried to block the body from view as onlookers gathered on the busy street. A section of the road was closed off.
Motorists and passengers looked out of windows as taxis and buses ferrying them to work slowed down.
