By ALICE NACHILEMBE
A-couple in Lusaka has allegedly been killed by unknown people and dumped 30 meters from their home.
Deputy Police Spokesperson Danny Mwale said that Bwalya Chileshe 56, of Kasupe area in Lusaka and her husband Bernard Chomba 60, were discovered dead about 30 meters near their home.
Mr Mwale said that preliminary investigations indicate that the informer who stays in Avondale received a message from her friend that her sister and husband had not been seen for the past three days and their mobile numbers had been ringing and gone unanswered which led her to report the matter to the Police.
He said the Police officers and the named informer went to the house of the two victims and upon inspection they found assorted household goods scattered in different rooms of the house and also their motor vehicle, Toyota Spacio registration number ADD 5815 silver in colour was missing.
Mr Mwale said the two bodies were later discovered near their house in a decomposed state.
The scene of crime has been barricaded since the bodies are in a decomposed state.
He said it is alleged that the couple used to live alone at their house.
Mr Mwale said a pathologist has since been informed so that the postmortem is conducted at the crime scene.
Police suspect foul play and investigations have since been instituted.
