Sunyani police investigate deaths of mother and child

The Sunyani police have launched an investigation into the mysterious deaths of a 43-year-old woman, Abenaa Pomaa, and her 10-year-old daughter, Blessing Oppong, at Ohene-Djan, a suburb of Abesim in the Sunyani Municipality.

The police found the bodies of the two in a pool of blood in their room last Sunday. Their bodies have been deposited at the Wenchi Methodist Hospital mortuary awaiting autopsy.

The Sunyani Municipal Crime Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Kingsley Wiredu, who briefed the Daily Graphic, said deep cuts were found on the throats of the two bodies when they were retrieved.

He said a co-tenant, Kwabena Yaw, told the police that Pomaa and her daughter had not been seen in the house since  last Thursday.

ASP Wiredu said Yaw informed the police that the suspicion of the tenants were aroused as a result of an offensive smell as well as flies that emanated from the room of the deceased on Sunday .

He said after a report had been made to the police, they went to the house and broke into the room, only to find the bloated bodies of Pomaa and her daughter wearing only panties, lying in supine positions in a pool of blood.

ASP Wiredu said the police suspected foul play and would go all out to unravel the mystery behind the deaths and bring the perpetrators to book.

He called on residents in the area who had any knowledge about the matter to hint the police to ensure that those who committed the crime were arrested for prosecution.

Pomaa was said to be a native of Dormaa Ahenkro. Her daughter was a pupil of the Excel International School at Ohene Djan.
