A suspected bloody murderer in the grips of Dampare's men

The body of man believed to have been gruesomely murdered and dumped in a cesspit at Battor in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region, has been uncovered.

The body was found with the hands and thigh chopped off. The police have arrested and detained one Tetteh Ofoe, who they suspect, killed the man, believed to be in his 60s, and threw his remains into the cesspit to prevent any trace of him.

What appears to be blood stains has been found on his porch.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Elizabeth Efia Tenge, Head of Public Affairs, Volta Regional Police Command, has confirmed the murder, subsequent arrest and detention of the suspect, in a press release.

It said a resident of the town, who had visited the toilet, was met by this overpowering stench and out of curiosity, instinctively reached out for a flashlight to check for anything unusual.

He discovered to his utter shock the lifeless body and he raised the alarm.

The release said police officers together with the assembly member for the area, Edward Kikrobeti, had to break open the cement slab to gain access to the corpse.

“On-the-spot inspection” showed that the hands and thigh had been severed, with maggots all over.

It said one Tetteh Ofoe, following preliminary police investigations, has been arrested and taken into custody.

He is suspected to have carried out the murder. Two cutlasses were discovered in the suspect’s room and some stains suspected to be bloodstains were also visible on his porch.

This comes in the heels of the cruel murder of a woman by his heartless boyfriend at Ho-Fiave.

The man, whose name has been given only as Frank is on the run and he is being hotly sought by the police after murdering his girlfriend and stuffing her body in a double-decker refrigerator in his rented room.

The police in the Volta Region have launched a massive manhunt to arrest and bring him to justice.

The body of the lady, Lizzy, which was found in advanced stage of decomposition, was collected by the police and had been deposited at the Ho Municipal Hospital morgue.

The body was discovered following strong stench that was coming from the room of Frank, something that attracted houseflies as the insects hovered on the door and windows of the room.

Neighbors, who could simply not stand the strong and unpleasant smell decided to force their way into the room by breaking the door and what they saw was stomach-churning.
