happy_sindane.jpgJOHANNESBURG (AP) - South African police say Happy Sindane has been found stoned to death. The teen made headlines around the world when he claimed he had been kidnapped and enslaved by blacks.

The motive for his killing was not known. Police spokesman Capt. Leonard Hlathi said Monday no arrests have been made.

A four-month enquiry in 2003 established that Sindane was the son of a black domestic worker and the white man for whom she worked when the boy was born in 1983.

Sindane had told reporters that he was a white slave, abused, threatened and forced to live outdoors tending animals.

His black family was insulted. They said they had taken in an unwanted child and treated him as one of their own.
