This was a few days after her friend Stephy Leong reported that Karabo’s documents were found in a dustbin after she went missing on April 28 this year.

On May 11 Stephy broke the news that the pretty young girl had been murdered “Thank you everyone. Unfortunately, Karabo was murdered and her body burned. The guy has been arrested.”

News that was confirmed by  Karabo's close friend and Nigerian artiste Niyola who gave some chilling details about what the young lady went through including emotional torture and physical abuse before her death.  She then went on to claim that the boyfriend identified as Sandile Mantsoe was not only emotionally abusive but physically abusive and had tried killing the young girl several times in the past.

"I really shouldn't be doing this but the worst has happened and someone's life might be saved. My friend was murdered by her ex and burned beyond recognition. Before then he had battered her black and blue on one occasion and would constantly drain her emotionally. These signs were there, he tried to kill her many times until he succeeded. Now my friend is gone and she'll never be able to grow into the person God destined her to be . If he pushes you, hits you, yells at you ... my dear take to your heels before you get yourself killed. Life is too fickle to be toyed with. Only a fool refuses to learn from other people's lessons."  Niyola wrote.

In addition, the family spokesperson Tshepo Mokoena who is also the uncle of the deceased said that Karabo has pressed charges of assault before she met her untimely death .“What I can confirm is that a case of assault was opened by the deceased."  Tshepo told South Africa’s Eyewitness News (EWN).

The killer was also spotted getting into the house with a big bin when he asked what he was doing with it, he said that he was using it to carry laundry.

The killer confessed to the crime and was arraigned in court this morning.
