The bodies of three Limpopo teenagers who went missing recently were found at the weekend, police said on Monday.

Refilwe Lucy Mampshika (15), her cousin Franscina (16), and their friend, Kedibone Ledwaba (16), went missing on May 2, Captain Malan Nchabeleng said.

They walked to a nearby clinic in Nobody village, near Polokwane, and were not seen again.

One of the bodies was found on the floor of the Apostolic church in the same village on Friday. There were no visible wounds. Two bodies with open wounds were discovered in bushes at Mathibaskraal on Saturday.

Nchabeleng said the motive for the killings was not known and investigations were underway. “We will carry out a post-mortem soon to determine how the girls died.”
