POLICE in Senanga district have picked a body of an unidentified woman aged between 20 and 25 whose left breast has been severed by unknown assailants.

Western Province Police Commissioner Diamond Likashi said the body was discovered by Nandila Lukonga 45 of Katuya Township, who reported that when she woke up in the morning to go outside she found a body within her yard facing downwards.

Mr. Likashi said in an interview yesterday that Ms. Lukonga suspected that the woman would have been murdered elsewhere by unknown people and the body dumped at her house because she never heard any noise.

“The matter was reported to police who visited the scene. The body was inspected and had a deep cut on the left side of the neck, with a missing left breast which was completely cut off,” he said.

Mr. Likashi said a grey shirt, black lady’s pants, and a Zamtel Sim card, suspected to belong to the deceased, were found beside the body.

He said the reason for the killing had not yet been established but that an inquiry file had been opened and investigations instituted.

Mr. Likashi said the body had since been deposited to Senanga General Hospital mortuary awaiting identification and postmortem.
