Name known from daughter who dies at high school


The gr. The name of the year 10 learner from Hoërskool Garsfontein in the east of Pretoria whose body was found on the school’s rugby field on Tuesday morning has been released.

Steve Mabona, spokesperson for the Department of Education, identified her as 16-year-old Mia Kühn. Her parents gave permission for her name to be published by the media.

RNews reported earlier that Mia’s mother last saw her alive at home on Monday at midnight. They went to bed after that and when she went to look for her daughter in her room this morning, she was clear.

Matome Chiloane, MEC for education in Gauteng, who visited the school shortly after the young girl’s body was discovered near the rugby posts, said earlier that he could say at this stage that the learner had died of unnatural causes, but could not yet confirm whether there were no other parties or foul play involved.
