THE violent death of a well-known socialite has left friends and relatives in confusion.
While some claim Lebohang Mathuloe was killed by her boyfriend, the cops said she died from her wounds after stabbing herself!
The 25-year-old, originally from Kagiso in Mogale City, was found dead at Pecanwood Estate in Hartbeespoort, North West, on Monday.
After news of Lebohang’s death broke, a photo she had taken with BidVest Wits coach Gavin Hunt started circulating on social media, alongside messages of condolences to her family.
A friend said Lebohang had been dating a white man for some time.
“She was always posting nice photos of her having a good time.
“She seemed happy and we don’t know what could have caused the argument we believe led to her death,” said the friend.
When we called Pecanwood Estate, staff confirmed Lebohang was found dead on the premises. The person who picked up the phone said she couldn’t speak to the media and advised us to visit the estate to get the full story from witnesses.
We also contacted Hunt, who said he knew Lebohang but was not in a relationship with her.
“It’s very sad how she died and my condolences to her family,” he said.
Police spokeswoman Sergeant Kelebogile Molepo said an inquest docket was opened.
“At this time, we have no suspects and investigations are continuing.”
We visited Lebohang’s family home in Kagiso.
Her mum said although she was willing to speak to the media, it would have to be at a later date as she was making arrangements to take her daughter’s body to undertakers.
