According to New Zimbabwe, 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.
The police searched for the missing head and found a human jaw, grey hair, and teeth about 60m from the grave.
They also saw a place where a fire had been made near the grave, which could have been used to burn the body.
Chapfuruka’s body was taken to Kotwa Hospital for post-mortem.
