Kurt Lee Thomas went missing on November 22 and two days later family members identified his body at a Tygerberg mortuary. He was buried on December 1.
But Kurt Lee was detained at Pollsmoor Prison and called his alma mater on December 3. Bail was posted and the dead man delivered to his home.
Sharifa Jansen, a welfare worker at the school said she and a colleague went to give the good news to Kurt Lee’s mom on Tuesday.
“We even asked her, if she could ask God for one thing, what would it be? She said she just wanted her son to walk through that door.”
A really sick joke of Jansen’s, but there you are.
