MARBLE Hall police are investigating two separate incidents in which a girl and a young man were found hanging in their rooms.
And the other one occurred on the same day in Malebitsa Village.
“We have opened two inquest dockets after two people were found hanging inside their rooms at their parents’ houses,” said Constable Lethunya Mmuroa this week.
Marota Aphane (13) was found hanging at about 3.30am by her mum while Thabang Shai (21) was found at 9am.
“Both bodies were discovered by their mothers and the motive for the suicides is not known,” said Mmuroa.
He said suicide cases are common in this area.
“We are experiencing a high rate of people hanging themselves in their houses at Moutse West,” he said.
