Police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a gruesome mass murder.
The bodies of seven people have been discovered, buried in shallow graves at a house in Vlakfontein in the south of Johannesburg.
A man who lived with the victims has been taken in for questioning while another is still at large.
Police discovered seven bodies when a relative went to inspect the house after she could not reach her sisters over the phone.
She says the smell of what she describes as something dead coming from inside prompted her to find a way to enter the house.
Police have labelled a 27-year-old man as a possible suspect and have asked him to turn himself in for questioning.
Community members say the man the police are looking for, told them the family was in KwaZulu-Natal for a funeral.
Police say they are still investigating the cause of deaths and will leave no stone unturned to uncover what really happened.
