Three unidentified bodies were found dumped in Bunda Forest in Lilongwe on Good Friday, each with its head chopped off, police have confirmed.
Lilongwe Police Station spokesperson Kingsley Dandaula told Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Saturday that the bodies were of a man, a girl of about five years old and a pregnant woman.
He described the incident as one of the most gruesome scenes the police have ever encountered and that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) officers were on the ground to get to the bottom of the criminal act.
Said Dandaula: “The three bodies have not yet been identified and we have not yet established whether the three were related in one way or the other.
“We are also investigating where the heads might have been taken to and what was the overall motive of the murder.”
Police said the three bodies are being kept at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) mortuary pending identification.
