How can someone be this HEARTLESS! A toddler’s dismembered body was stuffed in a sports bag and dumped on the N1 near the Shell Ultra City petrol station.
HEARTLESS CRIME! THE TODDLER’S MUTILATED BODY WAS FOUND LAST WEEK
Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said police found the toddler’s mutilated body in a black bag that had ‘Sport Ruixinga’ written on the side.
The toddler was wearing a blue tracksuit with white stripes and a pair of black baby’s shoes. The police also found a pink baby blanket, a towel and a blue and white sarong.
POLICE ARE SEEKING THE ASSISTANCE OF THE PUBLIC
Mojapelo said police were seeking the public’s help in identifying a toddler, believed to be aged between two and three, who was found murdered and mutilated last week.
“On Thursday May 19 around 7.50 in the morning, the police received an alert from a passer-by regarding the abandoned bag along the N1 road in Westenburg.
“Preliminary police investigations revealed that the deceased was chopped with an unknown object before being put in the bag. The toddler had a bandage wrapped around his left leg and left arm and was already in a state of decomposition.”
Provincial police commissioner Lt-Gen Thembi Hadebe called on anyone with information to come forward, saying the police wanted to track down the heartless perpetrators of this horrendous crime and also find the child’s parents.
