Johannesburg - The bodies of a boy and his father were found in bushes at the George Botanical gardens, Western Cape police said on Sunday.
Captain Bernadine Steyn said the three-year-old boy and his 41 year-old father were found by a passer-by walking his dog on Saturday afternoon.
The boy had open wounds in his chest, stomach and back.
The father was found 10m away from his son with open wounds in his chest.
A spear gun was found near the boy's body and a knife in the hand of the father.
Steyn said it was too early to speculate what happened.
The father had lived in central George while the boy had stayed with his mother in nearby Denneoord.
