Police are searching for a KwaZulu-Natal man who apparently hung his four children after fetching them from school.
Police spokesperson Col Thembeka Mbele said in a statement on Tuesday night that the bodies of three children – aged 4, 6 and 10 – were found hanging in their home in New Germany, west of Durban, at about 2.30pm.
“The children were fetched by their father at school during the day. A 16-year-old girl was also last seen with her father after he fetched her from school in Durban,” said Mbele.
“A search was conducted an hour ago [around 9pm Tuesday]. Her body was found hanging in the bushes.
“Police are still searching for the suspect.”
Murder cases are being investigated by Pinetown police.
