Johannesburg - The body of a young girl was found on Muizenberg beach on Friday, Cape Town police said.

The girl had been buried in the sand.

"Because the body of the girl was exposed to the elements, it is not possible to make an identification yet, or to speculate on her age," Lieutenant Colonel AndreTraut said.

The cause of her death would be established during a post-mortem, he said.

"Forensic procedures will be used to determine her identity."

Police are investigating a case of murder.

    @franklin - take your medication. Your delusional state is evident @Pheeba... - is Franklin part of your extended family? Another young life snuffed out needlessly. May she rest in peace. She is in a better place.

    How awful - hopefully, once she has been identified, her family will get some measure of closure.

    Does anyone know anymore about this story? Has she been identified yet? And the cause of death?

    Franklin, You need urgent psychiatric assessment. You sound like someone capable of committing murder.
