Possible serial killer linked to latest child murder
Five-year-old Madira Selota’s body was dumped and discovered in an open field near her Tembisa home.
JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police are investigating whether a serial killer is behind the latest killing of a child in the province.
Five-year-old Madira Selota's body was dumped and later discovered in an open field near her home in the Tembisa township on Friday last week.
The little girl was last seen at a local tuck shop.
Gauteng Police Commissioner Lesetja Mothiba says, "The cluster commander was telling me that they are also looking at whether there might be a serial killer or not, depending on the DNA results."
A few weeks ago three-year-old Curburne van Wyk's body was found in Reiger Park, Westbury three-year-old Luke Tibbetts was killed by a stray bullet and four-year-old Taegrin Morris was dragged to his death next to his mom's car during a hijacking in Boksburg.
These are but a few children who fell victim to crime over the past few months.
Now residents say they don't only fear for children's lives, but for their own.
