Death in South Africa

May 18 2009
Woman dies of exposure after her bedding is confiscated A group in Wynberg, Cape Town, has asked South African minister Charles Nqakula to order an inquest into the death of Maria Visser. They claim that the homeless woman died of exposure in early June after local police confiscated her bedding and other possessions. The situation is further complicated by suggestions that an autopsy to determine the cause of her death has been slowed by the same police.
