Mankessim (C/R), March 24, GNA - Two boys both aged two and half years who were declared missing at Mankessim on last Tuesday have been found dead in an unserviceable saloon car parked near the Roses Hotel in the town.

According to the Police, the boys who were found dead last Thursday have been buried at Cape Coast.

An autopsy at the Cape Coast Regional Hospital indicated suffocation as the cause of their death.

The Police said they suspected that the boys managed to enter the car with all the window glasses rolled up to play but got locked up as they could not open the door to get out.

According to them blisters found on their bodies indicated that they were exposed to excessive heat. 24 march 07
