Johannesburg - An 18-year-old boy was found in Kutlwanong with his throat slit and the foreskin removed from his penis, Free State police said on Tuesday.

Sergeant Puleng Motsoeneng said the body was found on Saturday by a passerby near the Tshepong mine.

“When he saw traces of blood, he became curious and followed the blood traces. To his dismay, he made the gruesome discovery and found a teenage boy lying in a pool of his own blood still in his school uniform.”

No arrests have been made. - Sapa
