Builders digging a foundation stumble on a human skull, bones, blanket and rope

THABO Marule (42) decided to build an extra room and a garage onto his house, but he found something unexpected in his yard!

While a builder was digging in his yard in Meadowlands, Soweto on Thursday he heard a strange sound, and when he looked he realised he’d struck a human skull with a pickaxe!

Thabo’s uncle, Stanely Marule, who was overseeing the men working in the yard said they also found a blanket and a rope, which they thought were used on the person buried in the shallow grave.

He said he told the men to stop working and reported the matter to the police.

Thabo rushed home after he got the news.

“At first I thought it was a dog that I had buried years ago,” he told Daily Sun.

He said when the police allowed him into his house he saw the human remains.

“We have been staying here four years and there hasn’t been anything weird happening. The spirit of this person never troubled us at all,” he said.

He said he hoped the family could come and get the spirit and the remains of their relative so they could give the person a dignified burial.

Thabo said they bought the house from a gogo from the North West, who had since died.

He said they heard her relative had been missing for years and they’re wondering if the remains could be the missing family member.

Thabo said the house was in bad shape when they got it as a nyaope boy was staying there.

Captain Phephi Matlou said they were investigating a case of murder.

She told Daily Sun: “The contractors were digging and came across the human remains.

“All role players were called to the site and it was decided that a case of murder be registered. An investigation is underway.”
