Abesim Killing: Suspect Had Human Flesh Stored In Fridge
The suspect in the killing of three persons at Abesim in the Bono Region was found with human parts of one of the deceased in his fridge. After reports were made to the police, they found one of the deceased cut to pieces also in a fridge in the home of the suspect, 28 year old Richard Appiah. The other deceased persons were also
found in other rooms in Richard Appiah’s home. Two of the deceased have been identified as 12 year old Louis Agyemang Junior and Stephen Sarpong, aged 15. The discoveries were made on Friday evening a little after 11pm and the stepfather of one of the victims reported that Richard Appiah had taken his son to his house but
had not returned. He later effected a citizen’s arrest of Richard Appiah, with the help of his four brothers also, according to a police report. This then also led to the discovery of the bodies at the surveyor’s home too. The bodies have since been sent to the Mentukwa private mortuary for the preservation and autopsy. The Acting
Inspector-General of the Police IGP has also directed the Criminal Investigations Department Headquarters to provide technical support to the Bono Regional CID to investigate the killings. He also commended the police and the community for the swift response in arresting the suspect, and entreated that civil-police collaboration should be deepened to promote peace and security in society.
