    South Africa - Cuburne van Wyk, 3, beaten & burned alive, Johannesburg, 6 Aug 2014

    A three year old who went missing while playing outside with his siblings in Johannesburg has been found burnt and beaten to death inside a vehicle. Heartbreakingly, the identification was confirmed by the little boy's father, who recognised his face, and a scar. Police say DNA confirmation will follow soon.

    'The father of Cuburne van Wyk, 3, who went missing on Wednesday, has confirmed that the body of a burnt toddler is his son, according to reports.'

    'Police spokesperson Kweza said the child died as a result of multiple head injuries and burn wounds.'

    'Police are still looking for 25-year-old Katleho Phoku, known as "Chicken", who they think could help with the investigation into the boy's disappearance.'

    Rest in Peace little Cuburne

    I do not understand how adults can treat a little child like this, whatever their mentality, we have laws and a Justice system.
    May Justice be swift.

    Oh my How awful.

    It sounds like he could have been alive when he was burned

    The hunt for a man suspected of kidnapping and allegedly killing a toddler in Reiger Park has now intensified, with community members joining the police search.

    Three-year-old Cuburne van Wyk went missing from outside his parentsí home in Reiger Park last week and on Saturday a body was discovered in the bush behind a mine dump in the area.

    Arrest!

    'Johannesburg - Gauteng police nabbed a suspect for the murder of 3-year-old Cuburne van Wyk after a photo was circulated in the Reiger Park community.'

    They're not saying who it was, but it was 'Chicken' they wanted to find so......

    Glad the community came together to help police with this one.

    So glad they caught him!

    From your link:

    Residents said they saw Cuburne leave with the man, who had apparently offered the toddler and his siblings biscuits

    The man convicted of kidnapping and killing three-year old Cuburne van Wyk was on Friday sentenced to life imprisonment. The Reiger Park toddler was strangled and burnt alive in August last year.
