Just hours after she was reported missing by her mother, the body of 23-year-old Tenil Cupid was found in Santa Flora on Tuesday.
She was a mother of three - two boys and a girl.
Police said Cupid was discovered by Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) workers who were visiting a site at around 3.35pm.
Cupid suffered a wound to the head. She was partially clothed.
Relatives said Cupid, who lived in Fyzabad, was last seen in the company of a man with whom she had recently ended a relationship.
Police are now searching for the suspect.
Southern Homicide Division officers visited the scene and are continuing investigations.
On Monday, the ex-husband of 25-year-old Reshma Kanchan appeared in the Siparia Magistrates Court charged with her gruesome killing.
Kanchan was found chopped to death near her home in Penal on September 29. Her head was partly severed.
