A PARTIAL skeleton was found in a shallow grave on Friday.

The discovery was made in the Dambuza area by teenagers who were digging for scrap metal. When they found the bones they immediately contacted the police.

Plessislaer police spokesperson Captain Musa Ntombela said police rushed to the scene where they found the skeleton of an unidentified person.

Police found a skull and two thigh bones while ribs and the rest of the skeleton was missing. “We suspect that it might have been eaten by dogs,” said Ntombela.

An inquest docket has been opened and those that may have any information regarding the person should contact Ntombela on 033 398 9703 or 082 417 2753. — WR.
