Remains of missing woman buried in shallow grave

The composed remains of a woman, who has been reported missing for close to two months, were recently found in a shallow grave is Shashe River.

The remains of Tidimalo Jamson from Ntlhantlhe who was resident in Tonota Village were last week found buried in a shallow grave and police have opened a murder investigation.

Tonota police station commander superintendent Reuben Mphoeng told The Telegraph this week that “we are investigating a case in which human remains of a woman were discovered buried in a shallow grave sometime last week at Shashe river”.

“We have not yet established the cause of death. We, however, suspect that she might have been murdered and buried in a shallow grave,” he said.

He explained that the deceased, a 31-year-old woman of Ntlhantlhe Village, was reported missing on June 20th and the police immediately mounted a search. The search was called off after a futile attempt.

He further said although they have not yet arrested any suspect, they are hopeful that they will find the perpetrators.

He appealed to members of the public to come forward with information that will lead to the arrest of the culprits.
