While on patrol in the Mofokeng Section, in Katlehong, last Sunday, officers from the Katlehong Police Station made a gruesome discovery.

“Officers were told by members of the community that a baby had been dumped at a dumping site in the area.

“It is believed that the baby was stillborn and, therefore, was dead when it was dumped,” explained Capt Mega Ndobe, Katlehong police’s corporate communications official.

When police arrived on the scene they discovered the body and noticed that the baby had been burnt.
