PJ police are investigating the macabre discovery of a decapitated body in the Arrábida natural park over the weekend.
According to one report, there is no suspicion of crime.
“The head was separated from the body due to the action of the victim”, writes tabloid Correio da Manhã.
Other media sources are less certain about the contours of the incident and have simply alluded to PJ police ‘investigating’.
The victim, described as 39-years-old, had apparently been missing since last Friday.
The discovery of the body was made in an area known as Serra do Risco. The spot was ‘of difficult access’, confirm reports.
