The SAPS can confirm that an inquest docket has been opened for investigation following the discovery of suspected human skeletal remains at a game farm outside Port Alfred. SAPS was alerted about the discovery at approximately 19:00 last night. Due to poor light, the scene could not be processed. This morning investigators and specialists combed the scene and managed to retrieve remains which were taken by the Department of Health to conduct forensic testing. Investigation continues and at this stage we are unable to speculate as to how the remains ended up at the scene.
