Police have opened an inquest docket after a man believed to be the co-author of a controversial book was found dead.

The body, believed to be that of Mark Minnie, was found on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.

It appears like he may have taken his own life but police couldn’t confirm or deny that the deceased is in fact Minnie.

He is the co-author of the book The Lost Boys of Bird Island.

The book details how three former National Party ministers were allegedly central figures in a paedophilia ring that operated during apartheid.

Among those implicated is former defence minister Magnus Malan, environmental minister John Wiley and another unknown minister, who is still alive.

These and other explosive allegations are contained in the book by Minnie, a former police officer, and Steyn, a former investigative journalist.

According to the book, Malan, Wiley and the other minister were involved, along with disgraced Port Elizabeth businessman John Allen, in ferrying coloured minors to Bird Island in Algoa Bay near Port Elizabeth, where the children were molested and forced to satisfy the older men’s sexual fantasies.
