The lifeless body of a young man in his twenties was found in front of the Deo Juvante Youth Care Centre in Willows, Bloemfontein, on Tuesday morning, reports Bloemfontein Courant.
According to the caretaker of the centre, Madeleine Basson, one of the children told her that she heard someone cry outside the centre this morning at 3am, but they did not go outside to look.
This morning when the children were taken to school, Basson and the children saw police and the ambulances and realised that the crying of the previous night might be connected to the crime scene.
Police could not confirm whether it was murder or suicide, and details surrounding the situation are still unclear.
This is a developing story.
