Johannesburg - Police are still searching for a fourth person in connection with the kidnapping and murder of two girls in Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg, Gauteng police said Wednesday
Three people had already been taken in for questioning, Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said.
Two-year-old Yonelisa Mali and three-year-old Zandile Mali were found dead in a toilet cubicle at 5am on Tuesday by a resident in the area.
Police are investigating whether the killings are linked to that of a five-year-old girl in the same area in September. Police suspected she had been sexually violated and strangled.
