A 37-year-old pregnant woman was found dead in Jamaica on Thursday, murdered at her fiancé's home in Abingdon Property on Green Island.

The woman's arms and legs were lopped off with a machete.

The woman was home alone when several men broke into the house and mutilated her, reported Aftonbladet.

Police said nobody has been arrested, but the investigation is ongoing.

The woman is a Danish citizen but had lived in Malmö since she was a child. She moved to Jamaica three years ago to work at her boyfriend's hotel.

“What has happened is terrible,” said the woman's mother. “I cannot understand it. I spoke with her on the phone as late as Wednesday.”
