Estcourt cannibalism case postponed

A cannibalism case against a traditional healer and three other suspects who allegedly killed women for their body parts has been postponed to next week for a formal bail application.

The group was arrested on Friday after one of the suspects handed himself over to police at Estcourt SAPS.

He then led officers to a home where they found the body parts of a woman.  

The National Prosecuting Authority's Natasha Ramkisson-Kara says the suspects appeared briefly in the Estcourt Magistrate's Court yesterday.

"They were remanded into custody until the 28th of August for a possible bail application. The charges they face at the moment are murder and conspiracy to commit murder," she said.
