Busumbala was the scene of gruesome murder on Wednesday, residents have reported. A grade 12 student was found in a pool of blood at their Busumbala home. She was said to have been allegedly murdered by a man living in their home. The man in turn reportedly killed himself by jumping into a well at the home.
An Allegation has emerged that the young man had allegedly raped the girl before killing himself, but this medium couldn’t independently substantiate such allegations. There were no witnesses to the incident.
Residents interviewed by the local media said they visited the scene after the girl had already been murdered. She was found in a pool of blood.
The young girl’s alleged killer was hosted by the deceased’s family. He has been living in that home for two years.
The girl’s parents were away from town when the incident happened. They traveled to Guinea Bissau to attend the burial of one of their family members, locals said.
The two brothers of the murdered girl were devastated by the news of their sister’s murder. The two brothers couldn’t authoritatively confirm if the girl was raped before she was murdered. They said they were not aware of any love relationship that existed between their sister and the young man who allegedly killed her. They also said they weren’t aware of any problems between the two.
Meanwhile, the police are investigating the incident.
