Serial Killer loose in Pretoria area

Pretoria police fear a serial killer is on the loose after the decomposed bodies of two women, with their limbs cut off, was found in a shallow grave in Nellmapius, Pretoria, on Thursday.

Constable Portia Maleka said the women, whose ages are unknown, were found in a veld by a cleaner.

"Both ladies had their hands and feet chopped off, and one was also badly burnt from the waist up.

"Their bodies were found sticking out slightly from the grave."

The veld was near a railway station in the area.

Maleka could not say when the women were murdered.

"One of the ladies had pink and purple clothing on... which by this time had become rags on her body... they are unrecognisable," she said.

The women had not yet been identified.

"Families who have reported any person missing should please go to Nellmapius police station."

Maleka said the community, especially women, should be aware at all times, and try not to walk alone late at night "... because this is definitely a sign that a serial killer lurks in the area".
