A law student studying law at the University of Fort Hare has died after falling from the 12th floor of a student residence.
The incident happened on August 21 at a building called Caxton.
According to the information that was reported to police, the man was last seen standing on the 12th floor and a few minutes later found dead on the 5th floor.
