Gospel singer Deborah Fraser has bounced back after a series of unfortunate events. She opens up about her trials and tribulations

The past few years seemed to bring her nothing but scandal and misfortune.

From having her identity used in a money-making scam to a court case involving a former tenant and a near-fatal car crash, the gospel heavyweight seemed to have nothing but bad luck.

Now Deborah Fraser is back on track with a new album and her relationship with God has deepened. However, DRUM has learnt of the shocking discovery of human bones in the yard of her Vereeniging home, south of Johannesburg.

“The bones were placed among tree stems in her garden,” we are told. It has been revealed to us that the bones were found by her and her gardener late last year.

“It was bones and something that looked like a head covered with hair.” We then set up an interview with the mother-of-two. She confirms the shocking news in an exclusive chat at the beautiful Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre in Fourways.

It was on the final day of her 21-day fast that she and her gardener discovered the bones in a plastic bag. “I was so scared and shaken when I saw this.”

Although police have confirmed to her that the discovery was undeniably human bones belonging to a minor, the questions of who they belonged to and who had put them there remain a mystery.

But for 50-year-old Deborah, the victim of a series of personal setbacks, the incident has marked the turning over of a new leaf.
