Father murder his newborn baby by slitting his throat
Father murder his newborn baby by slitting his throat. On March 1st, 2023, a father from Middelplaas outside of Malelane, age 21, abducted and killed his newborn child by slitting his neck.
When the father forcibly snatched the newborn child from his 15-year-old mother, he was doing so with the help of four friends.
The family, which included a worried mother, was unable to call the authorities right away, so they searched instead.
The family eventually contacted Schoemansdal police station the following day, on March 2, 2023, and expressed their suspicions that something sinister may have happened to the child.
Colonel Selvy Mohlal, a spokesman for the Mpumalanga police, said they started looking for the boy’s mother right away.
The newborn baby’s body was subsequently discovered by police in Middelplaas, close to the reservoir.
The infant was discovered with his neck cut open, wrapped in a towel and a bloody blanket. It appears that the father cut the baby’s neck before killing him.
Police investigated after receiving information that the suspect had come with a bag of clothes at his uncle’s house in Kamaqhekeza outside of Komatipoort.
On March 2nd, 2-23, Schoemansdal officers made an arrest at his uncle’s residence.
The father is facing charges of kidnapping and murder of the newborn baby and defeating the ends of justice
The Mpumalanga acting provincial commissioner Major General Zeph Mkhwanazi, vehemently condemned the inhumane behaviour of the suspect.
“When someone’s life is in danger, community members should explore all the avenues to contact the police for assistance.”
