Police in the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Duong have launched an investigation into an alleged murder after two bodies were found buried in concrete at a local tenanted house.
The case was reported to local police by a man who discovered a large barrel, often used to contain water, filled with concrete, as he moved into the house, located in Bau Bang District, on Wednesday night.
The man decided to break up the concrete with a hammer and was terrified to see several human body parts in there, he told officers.

Upon his notification, police came to the scene for investigation and soon discovered a second body, also buried in concrete, at another location within the house.
One of the two deceased was a woman, an official from the provincial police department confirmed on Thursday morning.
The identities of the two victims have yet to be revealed.
Officers have been unable to contact the current owner of the house so far.

According to local residents, the owner usually leases the place to other people.
The house was previously rented by a man and woman, the locals said, adding they do not know much about them as they have rarely talked to other neighbors.
H., the original owner of the house, said he had sold it many years ago.
The place has been resold to several people since then, H. elaborated.
Further investigation is ongoing.
