A 53-year-old clergywoman of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia (ELCIN), Hulda Shau, was found hanging in her sleeping room at the Omphakoya village.
Omusati Regional Commander, Commissioner Titus Shikongo, said the deceased, who used a dress linen to hang herself, was employed as a Chaplain at the Oluno Correctional Facility.
“It is alleged that the deceased arrived home on Thursday late afternoon from her place of employment and showed no signs of stress or depression,” said Shikongo, adding that she even greeted everyone at home and appeared like her usual self.
No suicide note was left behind and the body was transported to the Okahao police mortuary for post mortem.
Police investigations into the matter are ongoing.
