An autopsy on the body of a 24-year-old woman of Seforo ward, Ikongwe village who was found deceased in her partner’s bed last Saturday in Shoshong, has revealed there was no foul play.

Police had to carry out a detailed report with the help of doctors to clear any doubt and establish the cause of death after she was found in her boyfriend’s bed and appeared to have vomited. Shoshong Police Station’s acting commander, Assistant Superintendent George Mabuta, said no evidence points to foul play in the passing of the young woman who was buried on Saturday at her home village.

He explained that on the fateful day, the young woman’s boyfriend left for work in the morning leaving her sleeping. Whilst at work he tried to reach her on her mobile phone a couple of times, but she didn't answer her phone, the police chief said. “Later in the afternoon when returning home he found the girlfriend lying motionless in bed and reported the matter to the police. “She'd vomited on the blankets and was rushed to Mahalapye Hospital where she was certified dead on arrival by the doctors,” Mabuta added.
