“Just yesterday we had a lead that the car was parked in Nyamorassa, so we went there with the Police. We discovered the body with one hand and leg cut off. He was tied to a tree. With the way he was tied it was obvious they hit him from behind and neck was broken. We are not sure whether they took anything from him,” one of the driver’s narrated
However the family of the deceased said they cannot understand why the church was unable to notice the decomposed body.
“I am very disturbed because it is not easy to lose a relative in such a manner, a church is located right here. So, the pastor and his members have church service every time and they couldn’t even notice anything. We are really surprised at that.
“Are they trying to say they don’t come out of the church to urinate or do anything outside the church to notice the body? It’s not easy at all so I want the Police to help us investigate this situation,” the relative said worriedly.
Meanwhile, the decomposed body of the deceased has been deposited at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital Mortuary for autopsy and preservation.
