The Acting Inspector General of Police Dr George Akuffo Dampare and a high-powered delegation have arrived at Abesim, near Sunyani, in connection with the gruesome murder of three young men in the town.

Tragedy hit the farming community in the early hours of Saturday, when Richard Appiah, a popular footballer, allegedly murdered his 12-year-old relative, with two others, and kept the body in a room.

Police have since retrieved and deposited the bodies of Louis Agyemang Junior, Stephen Sarpong and a yet to be identified body at a private mortuary at Mantukwa in the Sunyani West Municipality.
