In South Africa, police in Mpumalanga have arrested a 19-year-old boy in connection with the murder of his 14-year-old cousin whom he kidnapped and demanded ransom from relatives before her body was found dumped in a pit toilet.
Reports say the victim had disappeared over the weekend after being kidnapped by her 19-year-old cousin.
After the kidnapping, the family received several calls from alleged kidnappers demanding ransom in exchange for her release.
Speaking on behalf of police, Leonard Hlathi said it is belived that more people may have been involved in the 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.”
The 19-year-old is still in in custody of the police as investigation is ongoing.
