Johannesburg – An inquest docket has been opened at the Hillbrow police station following the death of a man at the Vannin Court building at corner Quartz and Pietersen streets in Hillbrow.
Hillbrow police spokesperson Captain Musa Shihambe said in the incident, which happened on Thursday last week, the deceased Philani Cele was found dead at about midnight.
“Paramedics and LCRC were summoned to the scene. It is said that in the evening of the day the deceased was seen drinking liquor with friends at the seventh floor of Vannin Court. At about 23:50 he was found dead by a community member who had last seen him drinking there. He had suffered serious injuries on the head; and it is suspected that he might have fallen from where he was last seen drinking. So far there is no known witness in this matter, and no arrest has been made,” Shihambe said.
