South African Teenager Dead in Mauritius: Autopsy Finally Reveals Cause

17 year old Mundolene Vosloo collapsed after being slapped by her stepmother Maria Vosloo. The autopsy report concluded that the South African tourist died of an intracranial hemorrhage. The autopsy was performed by Dr. Gungadin at the morgue of Victoria Hospital in Candos on Thursday  6th of October.


The teenager was found dead at the Riu Creole Morne on Wednesday night 5th of October. She was slapped by her stepmother Maria Vosloo but suspecting discomfort, the hotel staff have taken to the infirmary where the doctor on duty could only confirm her death.

The stepmother was placed in police detention at Sodnac after being questioned extensively. She appeared in court on Thursday at Bambous and the magistrate ordered that she should be examined by a doctor before her next appearance. It has therefore been extended to cell. The teenager had arrived in Mauritius with her parents on Tuesday 4th of October.
