Police appeal to Gqeberha residents for info after foetus found near sewer drain

Police in the Eastern Cape are appealing to the community of Gqeberha to assist with any information after a foetus was found dumped near a sewer drain in Greenbushes.

The gruesome discovery was made on Saturday in a bushy area at the back of a quarry.

The police’s Priscilla Naidu said a case of concealment of birth was under investigation.

“A partially decomposed foetus was discovered about five metres from a sewage outlet with the umbilical cord still attached. We suspect the gender of the foetus is that of a boy and we appeal to anyone who can assist us to trace the mother of the foetus to contact the SAPS or the nearest police station.”
