A 92-year old woman in the Kwame Peprakrom, a farming community in the Upper Denkyira East Municipality of the Central Region has committed suicide by hanging herself to death.
According to reports, the deceased was nowhere to be found on evening of Saturday, June 6 2020, after efforts including series of announcements on the Community’s Information Centre, to track her whereabouts proved futile.
Family members of the deceased revealed the incident in an interview on Kasapa FM and said vigorous search by community folks found their lost relative hanging on joined pieces of used clothes and mosquito net tied to a ceiling joint of one of the unused rooms in her own house built by her children.
The deceased before her death lived with her husband of 70-years old. The reason behind her suicide is not yet known.
The incident has since been reported to the Dunkwa On-Offin Divisional Police Command, who have launched a full-scale investigation.
The body of the deceased has also been deposited at the Dunkwa On-Offin Municipal Hospital morgue for autopsy.
