DUTNews24 reports that the naked body of a Durban University of Technology *DUT) employee was found in his room in a campus residence on Sunday morning.  

The staff member was later identified as Dr Euvette Taylor, a 30-year-old staff member and residence advisor in one of the university’s student residences.  Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said the discovery was made when a friend of the man alerted security of being unable to reach him.  The man was found naked on his bed.  He had not suffered open external wounds and his cause of death has yet to be determined.  His car had been stolen, but it was later recovered in Umlazi.  No arrests have yet been made.  Meanwhile, operations were due expected to resume at DUT on Monday after protests and the death of a student resulted in its closure last week.  Mlungisi Madonsela was shot during an altercation with security guards at one of DUT's campuses and later died in hospital from a gunshot wound.
