Mom collapses after Rasuge's body found

2012-03-27 10:05
Johannesburg - The mother of Francis Rasuge collapsed after hearing that her murdered daughter’s remains had been found.

DNA tests confirmed that the bones dug up at the home of her former lover, William Nkuna, belonged to Rasuge, the Times reported.

Rasuge’s elder brother, Edward, said his mother Caroline, 71, had been traumatised by news of the find and had collapsed, needing medical attention.

Rasuge disappeared in 2004 and was believed to have been murdered by her former boyfriend although her body was never found. Nkuna was convicted of her murder and jailed for life.

Last weekend, construction workers at Nkuna’s house found the skeleton and skull.

Edward Rasuge said the family hoped finding her remains would bring them closure.

He said they would be able to bury her.
