Abesim Murder: Deceased’s father gives blow-by-blow account of how human bodies were found

Richard Gyamfi is suspected to have murdered the boys, 12 and 15

Father of one of the deceased in the Abesim murder case Thomas Adjei has given a chilling account of how his stepson allegedly killed his own son at Abesim in the Bono Region.

Thomas Adjei, father to Louis Agyemang Junior, one of the victims of the gruesome incident, while recounting the horrible scene during the manhunt for his son explained that “after we had mounted a search for my son whom at that time we thought was lost for more than 6 hours, we decided to search the suspect’s room for the second time. Then we saw a locked room which he had earlier refused to open under the pretence that the occupant had travelled and he didn’t have access to that room. My wife fell unconscious when we opened the door and saw my 12-year-old-boy’s lifeless body on the floor in his own stepbrother’s room”.

The deceased was found dead in the suspect’s room Friday evening. He is believed to have been murdered by his senior stepbrother, Richard Gyamfi.

The 31-year-old Richard Gyamfi together with an accomplice [name withheld] has been in police grips after dead bodies and human body parts were allegedly found in his room at his residence at Abesim in the Bono Region last Friday evening.

Police allege the suspect murdered his own 12-year-old stepbrother together with another young boy who is said to have lived in the same community but reported missing some days ago.

Father of the deceased who doubles as stepfather to the suspect while recounting the incident to Akoma FM‘s Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin n Monday noted that “I still can’t believe this is happening to me. I think it’s a dream because I don’t understand. I hope I will just wake up from this dream,” he lamented in a sorrowful tone.

Twin brother of the deceased Louis Agyemang Senior has not been himself since he found out his other half has died.

“As part of the search team who mounted the manhunt, he was there when the police finally were able to open the door to that confined room where he had kept my son and other parts of human parts which were stored in a refrigerator,” the deceased’s father narrated.

He further added the situation has thrown his family into a serious state of sorrow and intense wailing.

“My wife after she revived from unconsciousness has not been the same anymore, she’s been crying and restless. My son, the elder twin to the deceased is yet to come to terms with his twin brother’s death.”
