A Verulam mom has died after allegedly committing suicide by hanging herself.
It is alleged that a feud between the woman and her mother in law may have caused the woman to take her own life.
Reaction Unit South Africa reported that they arrived at the Adams road home in Lotusville to find a crowd gathering around the house.
Neighbours reported the deceased woman’s kids aged two and five came to them crying. They told them that their mom had locked them out and was not responding to their calls.
Neighbors then proceeded to the residence and peered through the open bathroom window and found the childrens mother hanging by a scarf from the shower arm.
In an attempt to save the woman’s life RUSA officers broke the lock on the security gate and entered the home.
Paramedics where called in but the woman showed no signs of life and was declared dead a short while later.
Her emotional husband who arrived on scene blamed the suicide on his mother who had a week long dispute with the deceased regarding the cleanliness of the kitchen cupboards.
A few minutes later the husband, who also threatened to commit suicide fled the scene in a white Nissan Sentra and was found near the Verulam Recreational Grounds and restrained by Reaction Officers.
Investigations into the matter are currently underway.
