I went and I saw my husband’s body on the ground. I began to scream. I just couldn’t believe it,” Andrea said. She said he was robbed of his cell phone and gold jewellery.

Homicide detectives (Region 111) visited the scene and further enquiries are being conducted. An autopsy on the body will be done today.
