Police arrest suspect for killing 3 children and keeping the body parts in his fridge

Police in the Bono Region have arrested a suspect for the murder of three persons, including two teenagers, and preserving their chopped body parts in a fridge.

Richard Appiah, 28, an architect, was picked up on Friday, August 20, for allegedly killing his stepbrother and two others aged 12 and 15 years.

According to the police, 56-year-old Thomas Adjei reported that his 12-year-old son Louis Agyemang Junior had gone missing on Friday.

The boy had gone to play football and did not return home as of 10 pm.

But one of the friends of the boy told Mr Adjei that he had seen Loius exit the park together with Richard during the football match.

Mr Adjei organised some neighbours and went to Alaska near Abesim in Sunyani together with the police to question Richard, who is also the stepbrother of Loius.

The team insisted on searching the house and found one of the doors locked.

However, the suspect explained that the keys to the room had gone missing.

After forcefully breaking the door, the body of Louis Agyemang Junior was found in cold blood lying prostrate on the floor with the head severed.

The group found a sack containing human body parts.

A fridge in the house also contained three human heads, including that of Loius.

One of the deceased was identified as Stephen, 15, but the identity of the third is yet to be established.

Many more body parts were found tucked in the fridge like meat at a slaughterhouse.

The three human heads and the body of Louis Agyemang Junior were deposited at the Best Care Mortuary at Mantukwa in the Sunyani West Municipality.

The development has prompted the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, to direct the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at the police headquarters in Accra to provide technical support to the Bono Regional CID to investigate the matter.

Acting Director-General of the Ghana Police Public Affairs Directorate, ASP Kwesi Ofori, said the IGP had commended the police and the community for the swift response in arresting the suspect.

He added that the IGP had encouraged civil-police collaborations to promote peace and security in the country.

The suspect’s motive is yet to be established but several murders related to ritual purposes have dominated headlines this year.

10-year-old boy murdered in Kasoa

Ishmael Abdallah, 10, was murdered for money rituals at Kasoa in the Central Region in April.

Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini lured their victim into an uncompleted building and reportedly killed him.

Felix is a 16-year-old mason labourer and the first accused, while Nicholas is an 18-year-old student and the second accused.

He was playing a video game when his playmates, who are known residents in the area, called him into the uncompleted building.

Per the reports, the accused persons hit Ishmael with an object which resulted in instant death.

According to sources, the incident happened at the Kasoa suburb of Lamptey Mills on Saturday, April 3, 2021, between 5 pm and 6 pm.

According to them, they acted on the instructions of a fetish priestess to help them to gain wealth.

The suspects later confessed in court that they had killed a pregnant woman previously.

Couple Arrested For Burying Two-Year-Old Son

Police in the Central Region has arrested a couple for burying their two-year-old son alive at Asikuma Odobeng Brakwa in May 2021.

Paul Adobaw and his wife Yaa Atta acted on the instructions of a fetish priestess to bury the boy who could not walk nor speak since childbirth.

The self-styled prophetess, Ama Nkansah, had told the suspects that the baby was a spirit child from a river, and if they do not return the baby to the river gods, the couple will continue giving birth to such babies.

The couple and the prophetess took the baby to the backyard of a tenant near a stream called Gyankobeng.

At about 12:20 am on May 27,  they dug a grave, performed rituals on the child, and buried him alive.

A tenant, Abubakari Mohammed, who saw the three in the act, lodged a report at the Brakwa Police Station on the same day at about 3:30 am.

Cops proceeded to apprehend the culprits.
