Family members of late Solomon Korang from Sunyani Newtown in the Brong Ahafo Region are looking for the corpse of their father which was stolen from a private mortuary – Best Care Clinic and Mortuary Services – at Mantukwa in the Sunyani West District.
According to information gathered by DAILY GUIDE, the late Solomon Korang was sent to the Best Care Clinic and Mortuary Services at Mantukwa by one Nana Fosu for preservation on 16th July, 2018.
However, on 9th August, 2018, when family members went to the morgue to retrieve the corpse for burial and funeral service, it was nowhere to be found. Therefore, the situation disrupted the funeral arrangements that had been made. Later, investigations revealed that another family from Asuakwaa near Chiraa in the same district mistook their late father for Solomon’s corpse, and they buried him on 3rd August, 2018.
Daughter of Solomon, Kyeremaa Florence, who was not satisfied with explanation from the mortuary authorities, reported her ‘missing’ father to the Sunyani Police for address. Efforts are underway to identify the family that came for her father’s corpse instead of theirs.
Regional Police PRO, Chief Inspector Augustine Oppong confirmed the missing corpse to DAILY GUIDE on the phone.
