A body, burned beyond recognition, was discovered meters from an evangelical church in Kroonstad, South Africa yesterday (4 April). Many believe a gay woman, Nonki Smous, was the victim. She was just 28 years old. The charred body was found in the Seeisoville section of the township of Maokeng. Smoke had been spotted by residents the night before. MambaOnline reports how an identity document discovered on the body indicates it was Smous. However, police have stated the only way to properly identify the burned body will be with a DNA test.
