Cape Town - A Cape Town woman has committed suicide by hanging herself in a stranger’s garden.

The Daily Voice reported that residents of Southfield were shocked and traumatised by the incident.

The woman’s body was found hanging from a security gate in Southfield at 07:00 on Monday morning.

The woman was wearing a plastic raincoat and her bag, containing a Chinese meat cleaver, was found nearby.

Police said foul play was not suspected and more information about the woman’s identity was not released.

The woman in whose garden the body was found said: “Please, I don’t want to talk about it because I don’t want to remember what I saw.”

A neighbour said they lived in a quiet area and everyone was shocked by what had happened.

      You should state "our species" and not "this species", or do you feel that you are not a human.

    Must have been a plant disguised as a human being. Sometimes I look at a tree and wonder how a corpse would look dangling from that thick branch. But then I remember that the way life is too important to be taken seriously let me think about think humans instead of thick tree branches. I wonder how many gates she felt before she decided on that one.

    The article mentions a "stranger", but why specifically there, and why did the deceased carry a meat cleaver in a plastic bag? Murderous, vengeful intentions w.r.t the resident on the part of "stranger"? Perhaps at the last instant, she thought better of it and only executed part 2 of her plan, knowing full well how it would traumatise the resident. One can speculate. Just another bit of evidence what hell we can create on earth for one-another. And it does not have to be so.
