A woman’s torso was found dumped along Landhies Road, Nairobi.
The torso was wrapped in a paper and placed on the roadside where it was found by passers-by.
The head, legs and hands of the unidentified woman were missing.
According to officers who picked up the remains, they received word before going to the scene of incident.
Nairobi police boss Philip Ndolo said the victim could have been killed elsewhere and her torso dumped in the city.
He called on people whose kin are missing to report to the police in order to facilitate investigations.
The torso has since been taken to City Mortuary.
