A woman has been found dead, her hands cut off and her cellphone and keys inside her sliced-open stomach in Limpopo.

The 20-year-old’s body was found in bushes at Mandlikazi village near Letsitele, said the police’s Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

“The body had its arms tied at the back, hands cut off and the deceased’s house keys and cellphone were placed inside her stomach which was cut open.”

She was believed to be from Relela village, about 8km from where the body was found.

“Police are not ruling out the possibility of this being a ritual-related murder,” Mulaudzi said.
