Johannesburg - A 15-year-old girl has been found dead in a shallow grave in Verdwaal village, Itsoseng, North West police said on Thursday.

Following a search, her partially buried body was found on Wednesday in the bush, after she was reported missing on Sunday, Sergeant Philani Nkwalase said.

Her parents last saw her on Friday when she went to school.

"According to information from [a] fellow learner, they both went straight to a local tavern after school.

It is further alleged that her [friend] walked [her] home after midnight and that was the last time she saw her," Nkwalase said.

A post mortem would be conducted. No arrests had been made yet.

    Terrible let us find out who committed this heinous crime, legally find him/her guilty, and the 'snuff out their lights'. I can find absolutely no logical reason why a convicted murderer needs to be kept alive....for what ! It is not as though the human race is in danger of becoming extinct any time soon......AND we have a huge overpopulation problem to deal with...there is no other reason why so many people live below the breadline.

      Rhetorical question. It means to ask a question, even when you already know the answer. Often used to make a point or draw attention. In this case, it is used to point out that the girl placed herself in harms way. Not that this should ever be used to excuse what happened to her.

    Eish under 18s and tarvens... The tarven managers shud also be charged. In a way God saved this mother from more problems. Some well raised children choose to disobey parents and explore life dangerously. Unfortunately the outcomes of such actions is almost always fatal. A 16 yr old niece of mine steals everything, money, clothes, fones, electronics, cuttlery, etc from every1 in her own family.... She stole so much from me at some point I prayed God must just let her die. She dissappears from home for weeks often seen in tarvens. If you tell her to wash her own dishes she writes a suicide note n give to teachers. This is the first ive ever seen. If she lays her eyes on it, she will take it ALL for her n her friends booze.

      As she disappears so often , the police may never want to open a missing person dossier should she be suspected missing...
