Missing Child Was Found Dead

A young 4 year old boy from Rookdale, Bergville who was reported missing was found dead.

The body of Asimdumise Phungwayo was found at 6: 30am in the morning at Woodstock dam which is located close to his house. The family said his body had no stabbing wounds nor bullet holes but it looked like he had been attacked with something on his head.

The body was found lying upside down and that is what makes family members suspect that there's someone who had stolen him and dumped his body after murdering him. Asimdumise had gone missing since on Sunday afternoon at 5:30 pm.

The family suspects that a person's hand is responsible for his murder as it is clear that he was killed somewhere else before he was dumped at this dam. Reports revealed that the mother of the deceased couldn't hold back her tears when she arrive at the scene where her son's body was found.

Asimdumise's uncle Khaya Mavundla said they woke up to these sad news after hoping that the child would be found well and alive.

'The child was killed by someone who then dumped his body in the water, the water was still muddy at the spot where the killer had thrown his body at. We will wait for the body investigation to determine the cause of death.' Stated Mavundla.
