The gruesome discovery of the bodies of the couple, Gezani Donald Mahori (32) and Fortunate Shopola (25) was made by the police on Sunday at about 17:00 who were alerted to the house by neighbours who had not seen the duo for three days prior to the discovery.

Ngoepe said the motive behind the deaths is not known but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.

“Members of the community are encouraged to seek professional help if they have problems with their partners rather than resorting to violence,” said Ngoepe.

Police investigations are continuing.
