Police hoping to identify body found in Mt Lambert

Today, police are hoping to positively identify the body of a man which was found in a shallow grave over the weekend.  

Police said the body was found on Saturday afternoon in a shallow grave near a river embankment off Mt Lambert Circular Road, near Aranguez. 

Officers of the North Eastern Division, under the supervision of Snr Sup Phillip, received intelligence which led them to the area. 

They were directed to a spot where the ground had been disturbed and told that a man had been buried there. 

The officers dug the mound and found the body; police were told it the victim was a man who had been reported missing earlier this year. 

This is yet to be confirmed. 

Police noted that while there was also intelligence on how the victim had died, an autopsy was ordered to confirm this.
