The police quickly proceeded to the scene of the crime to find the deceased lying in a prone position in a pool of blood with a deep cut on her head. She was dressed in a black skirt with a white top.

According to the police, a postmortem examination had already been performed on the corpse at the Sawla Tuna Kalba District Hospital and the body has been released to the bereaved family for burial.

 

Meanwhile, the Sawla Tuna Kalba Police Command, bemoaned the incident adding that the murder of the deceased brings the number of murder cases involving women by close relations in the enclave to four within six months.

Inspector Owusu therefore appealed to the local chiefs and opinion leaders to team up with police to weed out crime from their communities.
