South African man hangs his children

Father arrested after kids found hanged:

A 36-year-old man from near King William’s Town, South Africa was arrested after his two children were found hanging by noose in their home. The children were a 4-year-old girl and a six-year-old boy. There was a third noose set up that was allegedly for the suspect. He had left a suicide note on the wall of the residence.

His wife was at work when the murders took place and the couple were allegedly having marital problems.

A community elder put it in better words than I ever could…

One elder was overheard telling other members of the community: “Their marital problems have got nothing (to do) with innocent young children. He should have taken his own life; he was a coward.”
