KINGSTON, Jamaica, Feb 17, CMC – Police have detained two men for questioning in connection with the death of a 59-year-old woman, who had been sexually assaulted and beheaded last week.

They said that she also appeared to have been sexually assaulted.
Media reports said that relatives had become concerned when Thompson, who was not married, did not return home and that several calls to her cell phone went unanswered.
A report was made at the Clark’s Town police station and during the search, her body was found in bushes with multiple chop wounds.
