Johannesburg - The body of a 6-year-old girl from Humansdorp in the Eastern Cape was found by police just a few hundred metres from her home, police said on Sunday.

Police spokesperson Priscilla Naidu said Anelisiwe Sous had been missing since Friday. She lived with her family on a farm near Humansdorp.

Naidu said police suspected the child had been raped as some of her clothes were missing. There were also bruise marks around her neck.

"A post mortem will be done on Monday to determine cause of death," said Naidu.

The child's mother noticed she was gone at suppertime on Friday and became worried. The community searched into the night, but could not find her.

"Police were notified on Saturday morning and joined the search. Police then found her body close to her home," Naidu said.

Three teenage boys from another community are being questioned by police, but have not been charged.

"The teenagers were seen on the farm on Friday," said Naidu.

    Dont worry, just another child, the government does not care. The time will come where the public will take justice into their own hands and in their own ways. Castrate the guilty ones, if the death penalty is too cruel.

      how is this gov's fault? did men start raping in the past 18 years only? i remember the first time i heard about rape. it was many years ago in an american movie. also read about it in british novels. oh and of course the bible describes it as well.

    Pains me to imagine what these poor children go through in their last moments of life. How can a human being do this to a beautiful, innocent little girl??

      I agree, extremely sad what her last thoughts were. No one should have to experience those types of emotions. NO ONE!

      Judging by the frequency of child rapes, 'human beings' do this without much thought and emotion. It sickens me!

    yet another case of a child abuse/rape . There are thousands of these type of cases happening as we speak in South-Africa & around the world... I wish there was more the government/people with power can do to prevent/make this less of a problem. Maybe focus on this more than waste time with Malema and other sh*t, after all this is what matters, the youth...

    It is bad enough to lose a child so young, but knowing that your child suffered pain and confusion before being brutally murdered must make it 1000 times worse. My most heartfelt condolences to the family... As for the suspects, teenagers again? What monsters are being bred in this country?

  • Gerry - 2012-04-30 06:42

    And the fat government cronies spend hours discussing the merits of eating cake in front of their followers... while children are being brutally killed. Ai!
