South Africa

Johannesburg – Mpumalanga police have arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the murder of his teenage cousin.

The body of the 14-year-old boy was found in a pit toilet after she went missing for several days over the weekend.

Her family received a call from alleged kidnappers demanding ransom in exchange for her release.


The police’s Leornad Hlathi said that investigators believed that more people may have been involved in this crime.

“We are still investigating this case because apparently he might not have worked alone, it could be that there are some people we will have to trace.

Yesterday, he led us from pillar to post indicating that he wants to communicate with some people that he worked with but then he ran around without becoming specific.”
