Polokwane – The headless body of a middle-aged woman from Lulekani, outside Phalaborwa, was found in her bedroom on Monday in what police suspect may be a ritual killing.
Family members found the woman's body in the early hours of the morning, according to police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.
"The motive behind this incident is still unknown, but ritual killing may not be ruled out," said Ngoepe.
Police are still looking for the woman's head.
The deceased's two younger brothers were brought in for questioning by police but no suspects have been arrested.
