PITCH Black Afro’s wife, Trisha, is lying in a mortuary and her loved ones want answers.
A source who claimed Trisha could have been killed said the truth would soon come out and justice would be served.
The source said the incident happened on the morning of 31 December. “Pitch Black and his wife were invited for drinks by a friend at a flat in Bellevue, Joburg on the 30th.
“They were drinking for most of the night and then Pitch Black got into a small argument with his woman. They left soon after that.”
The source said they booked into a bed and breakfast for the night, but the wife came running back to the flat barefoot, looking disturbed.
“When she got there, they drank again for a couple of hours while Pitch Black was sleeping.
“The wife was accompanied back to the BnB early that morning.”
Another source said he was called by his panicking friend, who told him the wife had bruises all over her face and was not breathing.
“She looked like she was sleeping but was bruised all over. It was easy to see because she was light skinned. I told my friend they needed to call an ambulance and police.
“Even people who spent the night at the BnB said they heard noises from the couple’s room.”
Speaking to Daily Sun, Pitch Black dismissed the allegations.
“I have been with my wife for 23 years and have never laid a hand on her. I am grieving. I just wish to be left to mourn in peace.
“If I killed her, why am I not being bust? I’ve been going to the cop shop every morning to check on the case.
“I won’t say much. The cops will issue a statement soon.”
Captain Sifiso Mabizela said an inquest docket was opened. “A woman was found dead at a BnB in Bellevue on 31 December. It is under investigation, but might turn into a murder case. There are witnesses.”
