Police have launched an inquest into the death of a 25-year-old man, whose body was discovered in the restroom of a restaurant in Midrand, Gauteng, on 15 June.
According to police, the man, identified as David Weru, worked as a social media manager. He entered the restaurant before it closed on Saturday afternoon, 13 June, but never left.
Captain Kay Makhubele said the staff at the restaurant were allegedly not aware there was someone in the bathroom when they closed on Saturday, and only discovered Weru’s body on Monday when they opened.
An inquest into the death of Weru was opened after police conducted an investigation at the scene.
Makhubele said there were no visible injuries on Weru’s body and that a postmortem to determine the cause of death was underway.
“Police will use any form of evidence coming forward to establish what happened,” Makhubele added.
Spokesperson for the Weru family, Dr Chomba Chuma, said they were still waiting to meet with the investigating officer, in order to get answers as to how Weru died.
