Swakopmund

The body of an unidentified black male person aged between 20 - 25 years with earrings on both ears and without clothes was discovered by two fishermen.

The fishermen were busy fishing in the vicinity of the Okay parking beach next to Platz am Meer Mall in Swakopmund when the body washed out from the sea between 10:45 and 12:45 on Friday.

Erongo deputy police commissioner Erastus Iikuyu confirmed this and said the police and the firebrigade were summoned to the scene and they attended to the incident.

“The body was taken to Swakopmund state hospital for certification and further handling. No missing person was reported in Swakopmund recently and nobody witnessed as to what could have possibly happened.”

Iikuyu said that the next of kin are not yet known and the investigation continues to trace the families or any person who knows the deceased.

“No foul play is suspected at this stage. A drowning (unnatural death) docket was opened. Anyone who is missing a family member or a friend fitting the given description is requested to contact me (0812464757), Det. Insp. Rosa Tjihavero ( 0814137105) or any nearest police station.”
