A 28-year-old man, Mr Richard Appiah, has been arrested by the police for allegedly killing three people.
The bodies were found in the house of the architect at Alaska near Abesim in the Bono Region on Friday, 20 August 2021.
Acting Inspector-General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has directed the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, to provide the necessary technical support to Bono Regional CID to investigate the murder.
The victims, all male, include a 12- and 15-year-old.
The police, with the help of the townsfolk, arrested the suspect.
Dr Dampare, in a statement issued by the police, commended his personnel and the locals for working together to arrest the suspect.
According to the statement, on Friday, one Thomas Adjei, 56, reported that at about 5:30 pm on the same day, his stepson, Richard Appiah, came in for his 12-year-old son, Louis Agyemang Junior, who never returned home.
At about 11 pm, Mr Adjei and his four brothers called for the arrest of the suspect.
The police, together with the complainant and the suspect, proceeded to Richard Appiah’s abode and “surprisingly, the police found the deceased [12-year-old boyd] lying in a supine position in one of the rooms.”
The Crime Scene Management team, led by the Regional Crime officer, Supt. Kennedy Adusei and the Sunyani District Commander, DSP Francis Humado, found a second body cut into pieces and kept in a double-door fridge in one of the rooms.
“The second deceased was identified to police as Stephen Sarpong, aged 15 years.
“The bodies have since been sent to the Mentukwa private mortuary for preservation and autopsy as the regional and municipal mortuaries are full,” the statement added.
