Police are investigating “all possibilities” over the mutilated teenager’s death, including witchcraft.

The 42-year-old murder suspect reportedly led the police officers to a forest, where they found the 18-year-old’s dismembered torso.

His arms, legs and head were found disposed nearby.

“We found that the hands, the head and legs were cut off from the body and we then recovered the private parts in his wallet,” a report quoted a police spokesman as saying.
