COPS hunt for suspects after discovery of three bodies.

Following the discovery of the deaths of three unidentified individuals, which were located in an open veld close to the junction of the N6 National Road and the R702 Road, the police in Mangaung Metro have begun a search for those responsible for the crime.

IN MANGAUNG, in the state of Free State, police have begun a search for suspects in connection with the murder of three individuals who have not been identified after the finding of three corpses.

Their remains were discovered in a field that was exposed to the sky close to where the N6 National Road and the R702 Road cross.

According to a statement released by a police spokesperson named Lieutenant Colonel Thabo Covane, "earlier today, (21 May), the police at Kagisanong Community Service Centre got a complaint regarding three corpses that were found by a member of the community who was collecting wood in the veld."

"A patrol car was sent to attend, and when the members arrived, they discovered three unknown guys lying in a pool of blood. Two of the victims' hands were still tied at the back with shoe laces, while the ties of the third victim were already unfastened."

According to him, experts in forensic science had also arrived at the site, and after conducting more thorough investigations, it was determined that the victims had been shot many times in the head, neck, and upper torso.

"It seems that the victims may have been transferred to the location where they were slain since there are empty cartridges and vehicle traces leading up to the crime site. At the Kagisanong Police Station, homicide investigations have been launched.

"I am requesting that any member of the general public who may have information that might assist in the investigation of the case and the arrest of the suspects should call Sergeant Mokete Godfrey Motsoai at 082 466 7255. Thank you in advance for your assistance." Another option is to provide the information using the MySAPS app or by calling the Crime Stop hotline, which is 08600 10111. People from the general public who provide information have the option of remaining anonymous, and he promises that any information that is provided will be kept strictly secret.
