Police then responded to the information and on Monday, 13 February 2023 they took him for questioning”.

Mohlala said a kidnapping case was opened. However, the man denied all the allegations. “There was insufficient evidence by then to charge him hence he was later released”.

Mohlala added that on 18 February 2023, information surfaced that the missing child was inside a pit toilet at the suspect’s residence. “Police from Vaalbank, as well as members from Search and Rescue team, rushed to the scene and upon arrival, they found lifeless bodies of three individuals, two males and one female on the street”.

The bodies reportedly had serious injuries which suggest that they could have been stoned and the medical personnel came to the scene as well where they were certified dead. The child was eventually retrieved from the pit toilet and she was unfortunately certified dead as well.

The case of kidnapping has since been changed to murder meanwhile three counts of murder is been investigated concerning the three adults that were murdered. “No one has been arrested so far and police are investigating this horrific incident”.
