Captain Raymond Shusha and Sergeant Bhekani Ndwalane of Port Shepstone SAPS assisted in tracing Mkhize.

“When criminals leave a crime scene they always traces of their presence behind in the form of saliva, hair, dust and fingerprints. By preserving a crime scene, the evidence collected will be of better quality, thereby ensuring a higher conviction rate,” said Captain Mfeka.
