Body of middle-aged woman found under bridge in Kumasi

It is still unclear what led to the demise of the woman


Residents of Ashtown in Kumasi woke up Monday morning to find the body of a woman in her early fifties dumped close to a bridge.

Her half-naked body lied face up with bruises on the thighs indicating possible dragging on the ground.

Some women who spoke to Joy News' Erastus Asare Donkor identified her as Rosalinda, a head porter (Kayayo), resident at Kwadaso in Kumasi.

It is neither clear who is behind the death of the woman, nor why anybody would want to kill her.


Some residents say she was a "good person."

A man who is a friend of the deceased said the late Rosalinda left home some two weeks ago and hasn’t been seen until this [Monday] morning when they found her lifeless body.

An obviously heartbroken woman who couldn’t hold back her tears kept raining curses on the killers saying that the god of the stream her body was dumped in should punish them.

The Kumasi Police have since taken the body away and have begun investigations.
