A 44-year-old Goromonzi woman died shortly after being intimate with her boyfriend in a car on Tuesday night.
Mashonaland East Provincial Police spokesperson Inspector Nobert Muzondo confirmed the incident which occurred along Warrendale Road in Goromonzi.
He identified the woman as Cathrine Takawira.
On the day in question at around 6pm, Takawira received a call on her mobile phone and informed her 11-year-old daughter that she was going to meet someone and that she would be back shortly.
It is alleged that at around 9pm, Takawira's body was found by a passer-by lying dead along Warrendale Road.
A report was made to Goromonzi Police who attended the scene.
Police also discovered that froth was coming out of Takawira's mouth and the body was taken to Parirenyatwa Hospital for a post-mortem which revealed that she had succumbed to pulmonary oedema or acute cardiac failure.
Police investigations led to a male suspect who had called Takawira prior to her death who acknowledged that she was his girlfriend.
He told police that he had picked Takawira and drove off with her to the place in question where they had sexual intercourse once in the car.
After the encounter, the man said Takawira started gasping for breath, which resulted in her frothing from the mouth.
The man said he took her out of the car in a bid to resuscitate her, to no avail. He said this prompted him to drive off to his house, leaving Takawira lying on the ground.
