“A 16-year old girl (name withheld) from Manje village was found half naked and dead in a whole near the graveyard ” The Soche police officer said on Monday.
The deceased, whom residents believe was a prostitute was found by a family living near the graveyard and they immediately informed the police.
“I was busy sweeping around my compound and my son’s ball fell in a whole near the graveyard, I went to pick it up and was shocked to see a dead body in there. I immediately called my husband and he is the one who called the police.” Sarah Gondwe, the woman who lives near the place reported to News Watch Reviews.
“When we arrived at the scene, a lot of people had already gathered there. It appears the deceased was dumped there during the night. We found her half naked and she had no wounds on her body. So we believe she was strangled to death.” The police said.
“It appears this young girl is not from this village, the police have tried to find her relatives but to no avail. Nobody knows who she is. We think she is from somewhere else and her killer just dumped her here.” A source reported to News Watch Reviews.
The case is still under investigation and the police still hope to find the relatives of the deceased.
