'Serial' Murders: Bodies Found Buried In Lilongwe Compound
Two bodies believed to be of people who had been motorcycle taxi operators have been exhumed Sunday afternoon in Biwi Township in Lilongwe city after they were allegedly butchered by an unidentified guard.
According to eye witnesses, a phone call traced one of the dead men's phone leading to the arrest of the suspect. It is believed that the suspect led police to the discovery that about eight motorbike taxi operators had been killed and buried in the compound.
Over a thousand people from the Biwi vicinity and surrounding townships flocked to the house where they ransacked, demolished and set the house on fire.
The bodies that were found were buried in shallow graves without any coverings.
At the time Zodiak Online arrived on the scene, relations of one of the deceased had, reportedly, already collected the body and hurriedly taken it for burial at cemetery in the area. Police were yet to collect the second body which was in decomposed state and beyond identification.
By sunset, members of the community were mobilizing themselves to dig around the whole compound in an effort to find the six other bodies they suspect were also buried in the compound.
