Midlands provincial police spokesperson Assistant Inspector Ethel Mukwende yesterday said the boy, from Village 5 in Rockvale, Kwekwe, stole a cellphone belonging to his grandfather and hid it.
After admitting to the crime, he went to retrieve the phone, but never returned home.
His body was found under a tree by a villager looking for firewood two days later.
“She alerted the deceased’s grandfather, who made a report to the ZRP Sebakwe police post. The body of the deceased was taken to Kwekwe General Hospital mortuary for post-mortem and the matter is still under investigations.”
