Police say this is the second such case in the area in the space of one week. 

The headless body of 23-year-old cricketer, Nawaaz Khan was found by locals in an open field at the weekend. 

Two men, including a traditional healer, have been arrested in connection with Khan's murder and both made their first appearances in the Umzinto Magistrate's Court this week. 

His head was found later buried in the ground.

The police's Jay Naicker says the second body was discovered yesterday, following the arrest of a third suspect. 

He says it is unclear at this stage whether the two murders are linked.

"Following questioning by detectives, he led them to an isolated area in Umzinto where they discovered the headless body of an adult female - not far from the body that they found on another scene, where they discovered what is believed to be the remains of the head.

"The suspects remains in custody and will be charged with murder," he said.
