A 19-YEAR-OLD woman was bludgeoned to death in Elandskop by a man alleged to have been her boyfriend last Wednesday night.

The man (20) hanged himself after the attack, which was carried out with a baseball bat.

Their bodies were found on Thursday.

A police source who is not authorised to speak to media said: “It is believed that the man went to KwaMgwagwa to fetch to his girlfriend. An argument appears to have started in the car because the car was also covered with blood.”

Police spokesperson Mthokozisi Ngobese said no one heard or saw anything because it happened during the night. A murder case and an inquest docket have been opened.
