Manhunt underway for Tokoza girls’ killer

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Gauteng police are searching for the suspect who murdered two young girls in Tokoza on the East Rand.

A team of detectives and crime intelligence officers have been tasked not to rest until the killer (or killers) of the girls have been brought to book.

“I am also urging the community to work closely with the police in finding the heartless killers,” said Gauteng Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Deliwe de Lange.

The two girls, aged eight and nine years, were last seen playing together on Sunday afternoon in Tokoza.

The girls were reported missing to the police the following day and the search started immediately. Their bodies were found dumped in an open veld on Tuesday by a community member who alerted the police. 

Anyone who might have information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect/s can contact the nearest police station. -
