When a 7 year-old boy came back home from playing with his friends, he found his mum’s body on the floor.
His father was allegedly sitting on the bed, staring at the body! The boy immediately ran out to the neighbour’s house.
He returned hours later. However, this time, things were different.
His mum’s body, wrapped in a blanket was still there, but his dad was now hanging from the roof rafters.
This is the shocking sight that greeted residents of Newskom, near Mbombela in Mpumalanga, last Wednesday. A neighbour said earlier the couple had been heard arguing loudly.
“They were making a lot of noise and you could hear that they were fighting.
“Because they always fought, we just ignored them.
“We couldn’t have known that this time it would go this far.”
Police spokeswoman Captain Jabu Ndubane said when cops arrived at the scene, they found the woman’s body had bruises.
Her husband was hanging from the roof rafters.
“We suspect that the husband wrapped his wife’s body in a blanket because he wanted to dump or hide it,” said Ndubane.
“But he couldn’t because his son walked in on him.”
She said inquest and murder dockets have been opened.
The child has been taken to a place of safety.
