Julie Williams said the family do not want the autopsy of her sister Dasani Williams to be done in Ghana because they have been told that officials in the West African country are corrupt and could compromise the integrity of the report.
“We don’t trust Ghana health authorities will do a good job so we want the autopsy done in the United States,” Williams said.
“None of us is from there [Ghana] and we’re not sure what will happen. People have told us Ghanaian officials can be very corrupt. We would rather have it done in the states where we can trust the system because we don’t know anybody in Ghana. Everybody we talk to believes that something else is going on,” Williams told Accra-based Asaase Radio.
Williams also denied claims that her sister was into drugs. She said she suspects foul play.
Meanwhile, the US embassy has also confirmed the incident, promising to assist the family with consular services.
“We can confirm the death of this US citizen in Accra. We offer our sincerest condolences to the family on their loss. We stand ready to provide all appropriate consular assistance. Out of respect to the family during this difficult time, we’ve no further comment,” the press attaché of the embassy Kevin Brosnahan said.
