Itsoseng - A 15-year-old girl has been found dead in a shallow grave in Verdwaal village, Itsoseng, North West police said on Thursday.

Following a search, her partially buried body was found on Wednesday in the bush, after she was reported missing on Sunday, Sergeant Philani Nkwalase said.

Her parents last saw her on Friday when she went to school.

“According to information from her fellow learner, they both went straight to a local tavern after school. It is further alleged that her fellow learner walked [her] home after midnight and that was the last time she saw her,” Nkwalase said.

A post mortem would be conducted. No arrests had been made yet. - Sapa
