This comes after police arrested two suspects who were found in possession of a human head wrapped in newspaper in Polokwane on Sunday.

According to police spokesperson Ronél Otto, the body has not been identified yet and investigations are continuing into the possible link between the headless body and the head that was found.

The police acted on a tip-off on Sunday that the two suspects were selling human body parts.

"They followed up the information and stopped the suspected vehicle in Market Street close to the taxi rank. After searching the vehicle they found the head of a woman wrapped in newspapers," she said,

The two suspects are expected to appear in the Mahwelereng Magistrates' Court on Tuesday on a charge of murder.
