Investigators in Morocco admitted that the body of another decapitated woman (24 years old) was found over the weekend in the Atlas mountains, the same mountainous region where Scandinavian backpackers Maren Ueland and Louise Vesterager were found and beheaded by Islamic extremists just two weeks ago.
Information on the new bloody crime is shaking Morocco, which hopes that its tourism sector will survive the bloody onslaught of bad news that has been leaking from the country recently.
Less than two weeks after the discovery of the bodies of two Scandinavian women, one of whom was beheaded, this time another 24-year-old woman was found decapitated in the Middle Atlas, according to Moroccan media.
The headless body was found Friday, December 28 in Oued Ifrane, in the region of Ifrane (Middle Atlas), local Moroccan media reports.
The Middle Atlas region has been placed on maximum alert and the Moroccan authorities have deployed security forces to trace the perpetrators of this crime and their possible accomplices.
According to Moroccan website Yabiladi.com, the gendarmerie arrested a suspect in the night of December 29 to 30 who would have already confessed, but exact names or nationalities of victim and perpetrator are not yet known.
Some sites claim that it is a Moroccan divorced mother with a 7-year-old daughter whose head was found 6 meters next to her body in the mountainous region, but police have not released an official statement yet.

On 17 December, the bodies of Louisa Jespersen, a 24-year-old Danish student, and Maren Ueland, a 28-year-old Norwegian, were found at an isolated tourist site in Imlil, some 60 km from Marrakech. Both victims bore traces of stabbing violence on their necks. One had been decapitated. By now, a terrorist cell of some 18 people have been arrested and jailed, including the four direct suspects who said they were inspired by IS.
On December 20, a Twitter account, allegedly linked to Islamist terrorist networks and suspended since, broadcast a two-minute video showing the four alleged perpetrators of the assassination in front of an Islamic State flag, pledge allegiance to the leader of the terrorist group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Defining themselves as "soldiers of the Caliphate in Morocco", the men promised to perform a "terrorist" action in Morocco.
