Sunday World has reported that the investigators assigned to investigate Pearl Shongwe’s death have dismissed the possibility of any foul play.

Instead, the authorities are now focusing on a potential drug overdose and are waiting for the toxicology report to determine the exact cause of her passing.

When her lifeless body was discovered, lying face down in a prone position in her bedroom, her family and the complex security guards had to remove her bedroom window to gain entry after she failed to respond.

However, the investigators assigned to the case have since ruled out the possibility of any foul play and are now focusing on investigating a potential drug overdose as the cause of her death.

‘We are doing so because it is also possible that someone might have killed her and left drugs there to cover up their evil deeds. But all that will be determined by a preliminary autopsy report. which we will get in two weeks.” said the detective.
