The Ghana Police Service is to conduct a forensic examination on the refrigerated human parts linked to the murder of three persons at Abesim in the Bono Region.
Three persons have been arrested in connection with the case including the 28-year-old prime suspect, Richard Appiah. The police said they have also retrieved the bodies of two teenagers who were found in the living room of the prime suspect in Alaska near Abesim.
Speaking with Asaase News on Monday (23 August), the acting Director-General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori said: “…Those two bodies are clear but those bodies that have been… and placed in the fridge might need a thorough forensic examination.”
“And the police will do that at the police crime laboratory at our Police Hospital and let us listen to the experts,” ACP Ofori said.
He added: “And let us wait for the experts to come out with their conclusive study as to whether it is one body in the fridge or it is two or whatever and whether it is human or not human, let us hold on for the expert advice.”
