On Thursday, Karabo’s father, Tshepo announced his daughter’s death via Facebook soon after he had called for assistance in finding her. She’d been missing since 28 April and quickly pictures of the 22-year-old and part-time student circulated the internet and social media in attempts to find her.

On Tuesday‚ her friend‚ Stephy Leong‚ took to Twitter‚ where she announced that Karabo’s ID and  passport documents had been found dumped in Sandton.

Speaking to Eyewitness News, family spokesperson Thapelo Mokoena says the body of his niece was burnt and as expected Karabo’s mother is struggling to cope with the news and loss.

“You know, not identifying your child is very traumatic.”

Revealing to the website he also says they have also learnt that the young woman faced abuse and this adds to the agony.

“What I can confirm is that there’s a case of assault that was opened by the deceased.”

The boyfriend is expected to appear in court on Friday morning.

Celebs have come out in droves to send their condolences to the family and also to speak of domestic violence against women.
