A Hanover Park mother is baffled after cops opened an inquest and not murder case into the death of her daughter who she says was stabbed and killed.
Police state that there were no visible injuries on Quonita Samuels’ body.
But Rochelle Roodt insists that her 32-year-old daughter was stabbed in the head and neck on Friday night.
“There was a lot of blood on the scene. She was murdered and she had wounds in her head and neck. I don’t know why they would say this is not murder.”
Police spokeswoman Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana says a death inquest case will be opened by Philippi police.
“A post-mortem will be conducted to determine the cause of death. The deceased had no visible injuries.”
Rochelle, a mom of six, says they don’t know who killed her daughter.
She was called around 10pm to the bloody scene on the field opposite her Johndown Walk home.
“When I arrived she was unconscious, there was blood all over.
“We took her to the hospital where the doctors told us she didn’t make it. Apparently there was too much blood in her brain.”
Rochelle says on Friday night around 9pm Quonita left her home to visit her friends.
“She was gone for about an hour before someone called me to say she had been stabbed.
“I know for a fact that she didn’t reach her destination because the container with the food that I gave her was there next to her.
“I think she was attacked as soon as she got onto the field.
“Everyone here in the Plenty knows her, I don’t know why she was killed.
“She was a nice person and would run errands for everyone.”
