The wife of the Denish man accused of mutilating women’s genitals and keeping their clito_rises in his fridge has been shot dead in her home country Lesotho, the Hawks said yesterday.
Anna Molise (28) was shot four times next to the gate of her house in Maseru on Tuesday evening, spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.
“It is suspected to be a hit.”
The Hawks were waiting for feedback from the South African High Commissioner in Lesotho about co-operation from the authorities there in investigating the matter.
Mulaudzi said they were “deeply saddened” about the murder as she had been an integral part of the investigation.
Following her husband’s arrest, Molise returned to Lesotho, leaving behind two of her children. She turned down an offer of witness protection. She would have testified for the State in the case against the Dane.
