According to Captain Tebhoho Lephoto, spokesperson for the Sebokeng SAPS, Palesa Mokhele and her boyfriend got into an argument after visiting a local bar, Vaal Weekblad reports.
Neighbours reported hearing her screams, prompting them to immediately investigate and stop the fight.
Later that evening, they heard loud music. Police suspect that it was during this time that Mokhele’s boyfriend allegedly murdered her.
The next morning, the boyfriend fled the scene, and called one of the neighbours to check on Mokhele. They were shocked to find her lifeless naked body on the bed. Emergency services were called, but she was declared dead at the scene.
Police are currently looking for Mokhele’s boyfriend. Anyone with information is urged to call Sergeant Moleka on 016-988-1340.
Police are also educating the public on reporting domestic disputes, in an attempt to avoid such incidents.
