"The owner of the said house, who is said to be the sister of the deceased's boyfriend, reported the discovery to the police and, on arrival, they found the deceased lying in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds."

The police have asked Lesiba Zachariah Moabi, 36, to go to the Lephalale police station, or the nearest police station, to assist them.
