Two lives lost to suicide

Crime report

02 November 2020 | Crime

The body of Hiskia Thomas (35) was discovered hanging from a rope in a garage at Mondi Haven flats in Mondesa, Swakopmund, on Friday.

The girlfriend of the deceased made the discovery after she returned from work and started looking for him.

Deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu confirmed the incident and said indications are that Thomas took his own life.

“The garage doors were locked from the inside and Thomas’ girlfriend had to use a duplicate key to open the side door. A suicide note was found at the scene and no foul play is suspected. The next of kin have been informed.”

A similar fate befell Victoria Meunaye Tjikuere (26) who allegedly hanged herself using an electrical cable in Omaruru on Sunday. The body of the deceased was found by a friend who went to her room to borrow something.

“The victim had not locked the room she was in and did not leave a suicide note. No foul play is suspected and the next of kin have been informed,” said Iikuyu.

Drug bust

Three females aged 16, 26 and 30 were arrested and charged for possession and dealing in cannabis and mandrax tablets as well as contravening the tobacco control and import laws in Usakos on Thursday.

The police recovered 108 full, 2 half and 2 quarter mandrax tablets as well as 1125 g of cannabis, a considerable amount of YES cigarettes and 314 sachets containing whiskey at a house in Hakhaseb.

The total value of the confiscated goods is estimated at N$72 520.
The suspects are expected to appear in the Usakos magistrate’s court tomorrow.

Attempted murder

A man (30) was arrested after he allegedly hit another man (39) in the eye with a bottle and caused serious damage. The incident occurred at La Pabra flats in Swakopmund on Saturday.

The victim was taken to the Swakopmund state hospital and was later transferred to Windhoek for further treatment.

The suspect is expected to appear in the Swakopmund magistrate’s court on Monday on a charge of attempted murder.
