A 30-YEAR-OLD man allegedly committed suicide after a fight with his wife over a text message she received on her phone on Friday afternoon at !Goas, Khorixas.
The victim was identified as Melrico Michael Tiboth.
According to Kunene police deputy commissioner Paavo Iiyambo, the couple had a fight about the text message and the wife then went to a neighbour’s house.
“After about 30 minutes, she came back home to check on the husband, only to find him hanging from the roof with a yellow scarf tight around his neck,” Iiyambo said.
The deceased did not leave behind any suicide note and no foul play is suspected, said Iiyambo.
A post-mortem will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.
