The police do not suspect any foul play after the lifeless body of a man was discovered in a room at the notorious ‘Cape Flats’ in Narraville, Walvis Bay.

The deceased was identified as Edward Asino and his next of kin has been informed.

According to inspector Ileni Shapumba, the unit commander for community affairs for the Erongo region, the police were made aware of the discovery by a man who approached the Narraville police station on Thursday afternoon. “Our members went out to the scene, where the 40-year-old man was found dead in his room. According to his friends, he was seen alive on Wednesday evening, when he told them he was going for a smoke.”

Shapumba stated that a post-mortem will determine the cause of death and said that the police do not suspected any foul play at this stage.

Erongo 24/7 established at the scene that one of his neighbours found the deceased lying on the floor, just after 15:00 in the afternoon. “I knocked on his door earlier but did not get any answer. Later the same day I went to his room, found his door open and upon entering saw him lying there. This is a sombre day for all of us,” the friend neighbour said.
