Bloemfontein - Friends of missing student Thabiso Moholoholo, 21, were left shocked after pictures of his “body” and an apparent murder weapon were uploaded onto the Facebook social network.

The photographs were accompanied by strange comments like: “We did him a favour, look at his last status. He knew he was going to die,” reported Volksblad.

The photographs showed a Moholoholo lying face-down, covered in blood, and a blood-smeared panga with a gold-filled tooth that apparently belonged to the student.

The student disappeared on 9 October after going to the library.

Shortly after his disappearance, a friend received an SMS saying he was dead.

Private investigator Leon Rossouw said the photographs and posts should be viewed in a serious light.

He was trying to establish who was behind the uploads as he didn’t think it was Moholoholo.

“His phone is also no longer active. Everything points to something having happened to him,” said Rossouw.

Friend posted messages on Facebook begging for the safe return of Mohloholo.  

But a police source said the photographs were false and possibly uploaded by Moholoholo himself.  

“He is a rapper and what he writes on his laptop, is happening now. Only he can do it (upload the pics),” said the police source.
