BREAKING NEWS: Woman found hanging from tree

The jersey that was used in the alleged suicide.

This morning, a child passing a veld close to McWilliam Street in Venterspost discovered a 35-year-old woman hanging from a tree.

When the Herald arrived on the scene at approximately 2.30pm, the woman was still hanging from the tree, while the Westonaria Detective Department of Crime Scene Investigation was attending to the tragic incident.

The child, according to Sannie Kruger from Afriforum, immediately ran to electricity workers working close by, to get help. The police were notified and Kruger directed the police to the scene.

The woman’s mother was also on scene. She collapsed when her daughter’s body was taken down from the tree. The woman’s boyfriend of many years was also there, sobbing and in great despair.

The 35-year-old woman allegedly hanged herself with a beige jersey. The motive for this apparent suicide is an alleged love triangle. The woman had one 18-year-old child.

The Westonaria detective unit was also on the scene.
