Police say they have arrested two suspects including a boyfriend, following the suspected murder of Policewoman, Lance Corporal Sarah Adjei at Nkawkaw in the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region last week.
Police also say they are going after another suspect, who answered the dead woman’s phone.
The person who answered the phone: a male voice who claimed the deceased policewoman owed him some money, is also suspected to be in possession of a Hyundai Elantra with registration number GE 331-19, belonging to Timothy Dampare, the Policewoman’s boyfriend.
According to a statement from the Police, Dampare, a 50-year-old Lotto Agent, and Richard Nimo, 30, Manager of the Misiho Hotel, where Lance Corporal Sarah Adjei’s body was discovered in a pool of blood with stab wounds, are under arrest.
In a chronology of events, Police say, the Lance Corporal Sarah Adjei, left home, leaving the boyfriend, Timothy Dampare, under lock at her apartment at Nkawkaw on Saturday, 7th August, 2021.
The deceased alone then drove a Hyundai Elantra with registration number GE 331-19, belonging to Timothy Dampare, to Misiho Hotel near Nkawkaw at around 12:00 pm for a short stay.
At around 7:00 pm the same day, the Hotel Manager, Richard Nimo, decided to check the deceased when he noticed there was no activity in the room.
On entering the room, he found the deceased lying on the floor.
The Hotel Manager then reported the incident to the Police, who on arrival, identified the deceased as a staff of the Nkawkaw Divisional Police Command.
The Police team then visited the home of the deceased and noticed the apartment had been locked with Timothy Dampare inside.
Two notes were found during police investigations.
One was found at the scene of the alleged murder and the other on the balcony of the house of the deceased.
The note read, “Dear Mr. Timothy Dampare, I told you I owe people money and you decided to help me and you have been with me in my house for one week now and you refused to help me so if anything happens, you have caused it.”
The Police called the deceased’s mobile number and an unknown male voice answered and informed the police that the deceased owed him 28,000 Ghana Cedis, hence the seizure of the Hyundai Elantra vehicle.
According to the Police, all efforts are being deployed to track the location of the Hyundai Elantra vehicle used by the deceased and her mobile phone and also apprehend the suspect.
The public is therefore being encouraged to volunteer vital information that might help to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Lance Corporal Sarah Adjei.
