Superintendent Ogaufi George of Maunatlala police said just after being tipped off about the murder, they received another report of suicide at Mogapinyana village, in which a 39-year-old man was found hanging from the rafters of his house. The man is the suspect in the death of the woman in Tamasane.

Nlebesi said that upon arrival at the murder scene, the police found a woman lying in a pool of blood in her bedroom. A bloodied axe was found next to the body. George said that they have since learnt that the woman was sleeping with her two children who escaped unharmed from the attack, said to have been carried out by their biological father.
