THE POLICE in Lusaka have picked up five bodies of people in an unfinished building in Chalala area.
Police Deputy Spokesperson Esther Mwaata says two women have been picked up in connection with the murder.
Mwaata says it is believed that the deceased were murdered by the care taker’s wife who was found in the same building with her colleague whom she had invited to go and stay with her in the same house where the bodies were found.
“The care taker is among the deceased, together with bodies of a baby, two female juveniles and another adult person,” Mwaata says.
The bodies have since not been picked up as they were found in a decomposed state with some of them beheaded.
But Mwaata says the bodies will be picked up after postmodern.
“This came to light after members of the public reported the matter to police,” says Mwaata.
Mwaata says the suspects have not been identified yet but are detained in police while postmoterm will be conducted on the bodies today before they are picked up.
And Mwaata has added that the deceased have not yet been identified too.
She says officers are still on the ground to gather full details concerning the incident.
