Police are investigating following the macabre discovery of around 20 coffins at a house in Orange Grove, Johannesburg at the weekend.
The property, believed to be a drug-den, was raided by local residents on Sunday.
Nickolaus Bauer speaks to Gauteng Police spokesperson Captian Kay Makhubela for the latest.
A group of about 50 people allegedly went into Orange Grove yesterday and tried to evict the people who are residing in certain houses and in one of the houses they found the coffins.— Captain Kay Makhubela, Spokesperson - SAPS
We have recovered the coffins but we haven't arrested anybody.— Captain Kay Makhubela, Spokesperson - SAPS
Some reports had claimed some of the coffins had been used and even contained bloodstains and traces of soil.
We don't know whether they are used but they look new and it appears they were kept in the house.— Captain Kay Makhubela, Spokesperson - SAPS
Makhubela says they are trying to determine who the coffins belong to.
