Autopsy on Abesim murder victims completed


Medics have completed a postmortem on two victims who were murdered at Abesim in the Bono Region, last month, the Kaneshie Court heard on Wednesday, September 15.

But the prosecution team led by Chief Inspector Lawrence Anane had to pray the court to remand the suspect, Richard Appiah, 28, because they were yet to receive details of the contents of the report.

As he asked the court for an adjournment, he told the court the report will be available in the next few days.

The court consequently adjourned the case to October 5.

Richard Appiah is alleged to have murdered his stepbrother and two others, aged between 12 and 15 years.

After reports were made to the police on August 20, 2021, they found one of the deceased cut into pieces in a fridge, while two other deceased persons were found in other rooms in Richard Appiah’s home.

Police later discovered intestines believed to belong to one of the victims buried in a cocoa farm at Abesim. Police have since exhumed the intenstines pending analysis and forensic examination.

Two cutlasses with bloodstains were also retrieved from the scene.

The identity of the third victim who was cut into pieces is yet to be identified.

The suspect was arrested in Abesim after a relative of one of the victims reported to the Sunyani Police about his missing son on August 20, 2021.
