The Assembly member, together with the woman quickly went to the Nkawie Police to inform them about the sighting of a decomposing body.

According to the Assembly member, who is also the Presiding Member for the Nwabiagya South Municipality, the deceased was not initially known until they got to Nkawie police station where a compliant of a missing person had been lodged.

“The family of the deceased were called by the police and identified her by her skirt, pants and green slippers that the deceased was wearing before her disappearance,” he said.

The cause of her death was not immediately known but according to Anane John Hawkson, the deceased might have been murdered and dumped in the bush.

He told DAILY WATCH GHANA  that the deceased was lying naked with her face up whiles her underskirt and pant were found beside her, a possibility that she might have been raped and killed by her assailants.

He furthered that due to the decomposed state of the body, a doctor was called from the Nkawie Government Hospital to inspect the body before the police used a shovel to collect her remains and buried at the scene.

The area where the deceased was found was also fumigated to prevent people from attracting any possible disease.

“The deceased might have been murdered and dumped here for weeks and because of the stay- at- home directive by the President the farmers in the community stopped going to their farms. If not that she could have been found earlier without her body decomposing,” he stated.

Meanwhile an investigation into the death by the Nkawie police is underway.
