Cape Town police are investigating the death of a 12-year-old boy whose body was found hanging at Netrag station over the weekend.
The grade five learner from Bramble Way Primary was last seen on Friday afternoon when he was sent by his mother to the shops.
His body was discovered later that day. The boy lives in the middle of two rival gangs.
Officials suspect foul play as his hands and feet were bound together.
Ward Councillor Angus McKenzie says information on a gossip site suggests the act may have been carried out in revenge.
