Woman’s Body Found in Wood Camp Community

first_imgThe body of an unidentified woman was on Saturday, April 30, found lying at the back of the Assembly of God Mission (AGM) High School in the Wood Camp community of Paynesville, outside Monrovia.The body, with a deep gash inflicted on the forehead, was discovered on Saturday lying on her stomach along the road, community residents said.Residents, who could not identify the body, contacted authorities of the Liberia National Police (LNP), who later arrived at the scene and wrapped the body in plastic “to avoid tampering.” The body remained unidentified by community residents up to the arrival of the LNP’s forensic team.Residents, however, believe that the woman was killed in another community by unknown individuals and later dumped in Wood Camp.“This woman was killed in a different place, because no one in the community can recognize her face,” one of the residents said. After examining the body, LNP forensics disclosed to the district coordinator, who was representing the community chairman that the woman’s body parts were not tampered with.According to district coordinator Johnny Bookai, only bruises were discovered on parts of the woman’s body, which indicated that she fought with her assailant (s) before she was overpowered, and killed.“From what I saw, I cannot tell you the cause of death until the forensic team comes out with their report. There were no parts of the body extracted, but only bruises and the deep cut in the head,” Mr. Bookai observed.Bookai has meanwhile called on residents of the Wood Camp Community and Montserrado Electoral District #3 to remain vigilant in the wake of an increase in crimes in the community.It may be recalled that armed robbers last Monday attacked several homes in the Wood Camp community where the LNP said it arrested five suspects in connection with the robberies.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
