MYSTERY surrounds the death of a Port Elizabeth teenager only days after he was hit with a belt, allegedly by his father.

Darren Tobias, 16, of Bloemendal, died on Saturday, three days after he became involved in what police described as “a family dispute” after he bought rotten eggs from a shop.

According to officers who attended the scene, his father, Irvine, ordered him to go back to the shop but he refused, prompting the alleged assault with a belt.

Spokesman Warrant Officer Alwin Labans said an inquest investigation had been opened as it was unclear if the beating was linked to Darren’s death.
