Missing Cape Town Man Found Deceased In The Mortuary

In a tragic turn of events, Bradley Wyngaard, a man who had been reported missing earlier in the week, was found in the mortuary.

The family had made a public plea for assistance, revealing that Wyngaard suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Michelle Williams, Wyngaard’s sister, shared that someone on Facebook had reported seeing him near Wingfield Motors along the N7.

However, the family received distressing news from the police on Tuesday.

“Police came to the house on Tuesday to tell us Bradley had died. Thankfully, police told us there was no bruising or scarring.

That was our biggest fear, and we prayed he did not die a horrific death. Yesterday (Wednesday) we had to identify his body at the Observatory Forensic Laboratory,” Williams said.

According to Williams, pathologists informed the family that Wyngaard had suffered a heart attack, collapsing along the N7.

He had been in the mortuary for 22 days, with a post-mortem conducted on November 14.

The detailed report is expected in January.

“He wasn’t laying [next to the road] long, about two-foot lengths from the tar,” Williams explained, providing some comfort to the family.

Despite the heartbreaking loss, the family finds solace in knowing that Wyngaard did not endure suffering. However, his 73-year-old mother is struggling with the news.

“This news is very hard on us, especially on my mother. He was our only brother. But, as a family, we have faith, and we know he was not alone.

God was with him,” Williams expressed.

The family expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support, thanking the public for messages and prayers during this challenging time.

“We really would like to thank everyone who has reached out to us with messages and prayers, those known and unknown to us.

We ask for you to continue praying for us in the coming days, weeks, and months,” Williams concluded.
