Two adults and a child found burnt to death in Centurion

JOHANNESBURG - Paramedics on Monday found the bodies of two adults and a child who appeared to have been tied up and burnt to death in a field near a housing estate in Centurion.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said the child was believed to have been about 13 years old.

Meiring said all three victims had already succumbed when they were found at around 8am.

“It would appear that the three (victims) were bound, gagged and burned to death, but (this finding) is subject to post mortem and law enforcement investigation,” he said.

Local authorities were on the scene to conduct further investigations.
