THE bodies of a man and woman who apparently died in a murder-suicide were found in their house at Gomoro settlement in Plessislaer yesterday.

The couple, Thembiso Mgobhozi (29) and Phindile Ndela (30), were discovered by a relative who had come to borrow a primus stove that they shared.

Police said the relative knocked on their door and discovered it was locked. The relative then looked through the back window, saw the two bodies and called the police.

Police found Mgobhozi hanged from the rafters and Ndela lying on the floor.

Senior Superintendent Henry Budhram said a postmortem examination will be held to determine the exact causes of death. He said the circumstances surrounding the deaths are being investigated and a case of murder and an inquest docket have been registered.
