Her aunt Jabu Buthelezi says the next morning when they looked for her niece - they initially couldn't find her.

"We didn't find her, and we looked in all the rooms, and then we found her sleeping and my younger sister [tried to] wake her up, but she didn't respond."

Buthelezi says when Nomvuso didn't wake up - they called the police who confirmed she was dead. 

A 35-year-old man was arrested on the same day on suspicion of murder. Police say he appeared in court today. 

Buthelezi says her niece had so much potential and was preparing to start college this year.

"She didn't have a boyfriend because she was focused on her studies because in June she was going to study hospitality. She finished all the paperwork."
