Police in the Free State have said that a 20-month-old baby who was kidnapped on Sunday has been found dead as well as the man who allegedly kidnapped the baby.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Motantsi Makhele said a manhunt for Chepete Petrus Mngomezulu, 33, and baby Bokamoso came to an end on Friday when their bodies were found in Vrede Farm in the Petrus Steyn District.

“The mother Khorny and Chepete were ex-lovers and Chapete took the child when the mother went to neighbours to seek assistance after he assaulted her.
