The decomposing body of 31-year-old Lesego Masigo was found in the home of her boyfriend 43-year-old Cecil Ntsele. According to Pretoria News, Ntsele had already committed suicide by the time Masigo was discovered.
Masigo’s sister had suspected she was at her boyfriend’s Mabopane, Pretoria home after he alleged to be unaware of her whereabouts on Monday.
Tshepiso Masigo said Ntsele had avoided her texts and calls all week. She had been pleading with him to tell the family where Masigo was.
After appealing to Ntsele’s parents with no success, Tshepiso found spare keys to his room and asked police to accompany her.
“I kept going to his home and asking his parents where he was but they wouldn’t tell me anything. I eventually found an extra set of keys to the room he stayed in and asked the police to accompany me to his home. That’s when we found her.”
Ntsele was found hanging from the ceiling.
“We could see he had just died recently as he looked okay, and many people had reported seeing him around the neighbourhood on Wednesday,” she said.
Masigo’s decomposing body was found naked on the bed.
The couple are survived by a 10-year-old daughter.
