Johannesburg - North West police found human remains in two separate incidents in Lotlhakane village and Litchenburg, North West police said on Sunday.

Lichtenburg police opened an inquest docket after they discovered human bones lying along the Deelpan road.

Spokesperson Captain Amanda Funani said house keys and clothes found with the body, indicate that it might be that of a 40-year-old man who was reported missing at the beginning of the year.

She said a passer-by had seen the bones and alerted the police.

Funani said the cause of death had not been established yet.

The dead man in the Lotlhakane village case had been identified as 50-year-old Samuel Kgang, Funani said.

His body had been found after a neighbour called the police.

Kgang lived alone in his house and was sick, Funani said.

"Kgang was last seen by his family and neighbours six months ago and was never reported missing to the police. When the police were called they went to Kgang’s house and found the human remains lying on the bed," said Funani.

Kgang’s remains were taken to a mortuary and police were still waiting for post-mortem result, which would indicate the cause of death.
