Man Caught With Severed Human Head, Organs

Police in Mozambique’s central Sofala province have arrested a man for being in possession of a person’s head and genitals.

Spokesperson for Sofala’s police command, Dércio Chacate, reported that children discovered the body parts in a plastic bag in Nhamatanda district and alerted the authorities.

Investigations led to the arrest of the man who confessed to killing a man and then cutting off his head and genitals so that he could sell them, he said.

The suspect admitted to killing and decapitating the bodies of three other people, Chacate said.

Investigations were continuing to arrest alleged masterminds and buyers.

Body parts are used by some so-called traditional doctors to make potions, which they falsely claim can cure illnesses, remove bad omens and improve the lives of people.
