KAYUNGA, UGANDA: Police in Kayunga District have opened investigations into circumstances under which a body of an unidentified male adult was killed and dumped in Kasana-Bukolwa Village, Busaana sub-county by occupants of an unknown saloon car.
According to Mr. Innocent Dusabe, the Kayunga CID officer, the incident reportedly happened on Friday, May 13, in broad daylight. He said the body of the deceased believed to be in his 40s was discovered in a duffel bag, well dressed with marks of injuries.
According to Dusabe, a 12- year-old boy who witnessed the incident from a distance told investigators that the unknown occupants of a white saloon car (car type not yet known) first moved around the village before they made a U-turn and dumped the body in Kasana-Bukolwa swamp.
“The assailants seemed to know the area very well and first surveilled the area before they dumped the body which has marks of injuries on the forehead- and it seems he was strangled,” he disclosed.
Dusabe added that the criminals could have exploited a weakness in security to commit the crime since the area does not have any security camera to aid in the investigations.
“We have not yet identified the victim which can form a basis of our investigations. We need to know where he was living and what job he was doing. This can give us clues in our investigations. That area has no cameras that would have helped us in our investigations,” he said.
At the time of filing this report, the deceased’s body was at Kayunga regional referral hospital as investigations for post-mortem as investigations proceed.
