Decapitated head found in Prague’s Karlín

A decapitated head that was found in Prague’s Karlín district on Sunday belongs to the body of a dead woman, whose torso and limbs were found in Prague at the end of last year, a medical examination confirmed on Monday. Police are investigating the case and have called on the public to contact them with any possible clues that would help identify the woman.

The head was found on Sunday at the corner of Pobřežní and Šaldova streets, in an area that is frequented by homeless people. The find was the latest in a series of gruesome discoveries in the Czech capital: at the beginning of December hands cut at the wrists and taped together were found near the Kunratice stream.
