Residents were left shaken in the early hours of this morning when they found the body of the woman hanging from a tree in a suspected suicide case.

What has stunned most residents is lack of information on the circumstances that could have led to the sad development as the woman had not confided any problem to anyone even her close friends.

The deceased’s husband, 26-year old Samuel Chitengu said he woke up around 5am to find only their three year old daughter sleeping next to him but thought his wife was outside doing her daily chores.

When he went out to look for her, he was shocked to see his wife‘s body hanging from a tree next to their cabin.

However, Chitengu could not explain the circumstances that could have led to the death of his wife.

Meanwhile, Police Spokesperson Inspector James Sabau told ZBC News in a telephone interview that they are carrying out investigations to establish the real cause of death.
