Limpopo- Police said a baby had been found at the scene of an apparent murder and suicide outside Groblersdal in Limpopo on Sunday morning.

Provincial police spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said a passerby stumbled upon “the horrific” sight of the body of a man hanging from a tree.

Police were called and they found a body of a 22-year-old woman with bruises around her neck, and a 37-year-old man hanging from a tree.

At the scene the police found a four-month-old baby nearby as well, they believed the child would be deceased.

Ngoepe said, “The child is in good condition and he was taken to a safe place,”

“The motive behind this incident is still unknown but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.

“Members of the community are still advised and encouraged that in case of any domestic related situation, they must consult their relevant local professionals for intervention rather than harming or taking the life of another.”

Ngoepe confirmed that police investigations were ongoing.
