Johannesburg - The bodies of a man and a woman were found in a house in Hebron, North West police said on Thursday.

Colonel Emelda Setlhako said police were patrolling in Rockville on Tuesday when residents informed them that a man had hanged himself inside a house.

When they arrived at the house police found the body of a 35-year-old man who had hanged himself with wire in the dining room.

"They also found a 38-year-old woman lying on the kitchen floor in a pool of blood," she said.

"Her hands were tied behind her back with a wire and she had open wounds on her neck, [her] right foot was chopped off, and [her] left fingers cut off.

An axe and a grinder were found next to her body with blood stains on."

Setlhako said police were investigating a case of murder and an inquest had been opened.
