SAPS NEWS: Police investigates to Murder of Seven men in Benoni...

Media Statement from Gauteng Media Centre
Corporate Communication and Liaison
South African Police Service


Today in the morning, seven bodies suspected to be of illegal miners were found in an open veld near the mine shaft in Benoni. It is suspected that they all have been shot and killed somewhere and the bodies later dumped. Police have opened murder cases for investigation.


Police were informed by a member of the public who saw the bodies in an open veld. The bodies are already in a state of decomposition. They might have been dumped two or three days before they were found. The bodies are suspected to be of foreign nationals who are involved in illegal mining in the area although they have not yet been identified.


Investigation continues. Police are also appealing to anyone with information relating to the identity of the bodies as well as information about the perpetrators to come forward.
