The head of a woman who was murdered by her son has been recovered. The son allegedly burnt the body of her mother and buried it in a shallow grave.
On February 2 the deceased neighbor visited her neighbor after realizing that she had not seen her for a long time. The neighbor asked the whereabouts of the deceased from the son, but the son did not give a satisfactory answer.
The neighbor then reported the matter to the police who then initiated a search for the deceased.
The research team came across a shallow grave in the homestead which was about 50m deep. They dug the grave and found a corpse that had a missing head.
