One person has reportedly been arrested in connection with the suspected murder of Ruth Eshun, the community health nurse.
A phone found at the scene of the crime was traced to the unidentified suspect.
Ruth Arhin, 37, a mother of three failed to return home after she closed from work on Monday, February 3.
She was later found dead a few metres from her house on Tuesday, February 4.
Speaking with the media after the body of Ruth was discovered, an eyewitness said “Her lifeless body was discovered close to where she stays. You could also see marks of assault on parts of her body suggesting that the deceased may have struggled with her assailants.”
But this narrative has been disputed by a relative who insists when the deceased was found, there were no signs of struggle.
“There was no mark, there was nothing like a knife, nothing of that sort was found. She was just lying here,” he said.
What he did note was that her underwear had been pulled down, suggesting she had been raped before being killed.
The Asokwa District Police was invited to the scene and the lifeless body of Ruth was taken away to the morgue for autopsy.
Her grief-stricken husband, a lecturer with the GIMPA campus in Kumasi wants police to speed up investigations.
“I know my wife cannot be brought back, but I will be so happy if the perpetrators are arrested according to the law. So I want the investigation to be swift,” he said.
