Family reels from second tragedy

Lerusha Naidoo...was found dead in her Sandton flat on Sunday.

Barely a year after pharmacy owner Morgan Naidoo was found murdered along the N3 highway, his 27-year-old daughter, living in Sandton, Johannesburg was found dead on Sunday.

Lerusha Naidoo, an honours graduate, had been working as a consultant for IQ Business in Sandton was found in her apartment on Sunday morning when her friend raised the alarm after failing to make contact with her.

Her lifeless body was found hanging in a clothing cupboard.

Police are questioning two people of interest and are awaiting the outcome of a post mortem examination.

According to sources close to the investigation in Johannesburg, Naidoo had entertained guests at her apartment on Saturday night.

It is believed a friend tried contacting her on Sunday and then went to the flat to look for Lerusha after repeated calls went unanswered.  Upon arrival at the flat, the friend found that Lerusha’s car was in its parking bay, but there was no answer when the friend knocked at her door and called out for her.  The flat door was eventually forced open and Naidoo’s body was discovered in the cupboard. Investigations continue.
