Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, a spokesperson for the South African Police Service, confirmed the occurrence of the event.

“The police, upon arriving at the scene, discovered an open coffin with no corpse inside. A preliminary probe conducted at the scene established that the suspect(s) accessed the graveyard by cutting the side fence. They then dug a hole next to the grave to gain access to the coffin and stole the corpse. The motive is unknown at this stage.”

The corpse heist has divided the Masedi family and the Mokwakwaila community, as people are now accusing each other of stealing the corpse for ritual purposes.
