JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — A black teen-ager who appeared in recent CBS and other foreign documentaries was found shot in the head five days after police questioned him about the interviews, his family and police said today.
The body of Godfrey Sicelo Dlomo, 18, was discovered Monday under a tree near his grandmother's house in Soweto, said his mother, Sylvia Jele.
Police said they found the body after receiving an anonymous tip.
Jele said in a telephone interview that her son had been hiding from police "because they said they would kill him" but that he had made a weekend visit to Soweto to see his family.
Authorities said they expected relatives to blame them.
"We want to know why was he killed after he made a statement to us (the police)," said Brig. Leon Mellet, a spokesman for the Ministry of Law and Order.
