19 January 2019 | Crime
According to a police report issued Saturday by Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, Annastasia Tilomalenga Kampulu is thought to have hanged herself.
“The minor was left home alone when her mother went to church with her younger sister and the older brother went to work,” said the report.
When the girl's mother got home around midnight, she found her son waiting outside the house as he did not have a key.
Iikuyu said when they entered the house, they found her body hanging from a wardrobe with a cloth around her neck.
Kampulu was a Grade 2 learner at Immanuel Ruiters Primary School.
No foul play is suspected and her body has been taken to the Walvis Bay Police Mortuary for a post-mortem.
Police investigations continue.
