A man has been arrested in connection with the hijacking and murder of Reiger Park toddler Taegrin Morris, say Gauteng police.
“Gauteng police have arrested a 32-year-old suspect following the hijacking and murder of a Reiger Park little boy,” said Colonel Noxolo Kweza today.
“The suspect was arrested in Katlehong and was positively identified as one of the hijackers who hijacked the family while visiting a relative on the day.”
Taegrin died in July after being dragged for a long distance behind a hijacked car. He was in a VW Golf with his mother, father, and sister in Reiger Park, when three men approached them.
The men ordered the family out of the vehicle. Taegrin was left hanging halfway out of the car in his safety belt and was dragged as the car was driven off by the hijackers. He was found dead in Boksburg, between 8 to 10km away.
Kweza said the man had been charged with murder and hijacking and was expected to appear in the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
