The recent wave of mysterious deaths in Bong County seems to be creating fear and insecurity among ordinary citizens, who are yet to comprehend the actual nature of  these deaths.

Recently, crime investigators of the Liberia National Police in  Bong County uncovered the decomposed body of a 29 yr-old man in Gbonota in Sanoyea district  after he had gone missing for 12  days unnoticed.

The Chief of Crime  Services of the Bong County Police Detachment  told  this paper that  Garmai Bortee went missing on the 28 of February and was not seen until march 11, 2011, when his decomposed body was discovered  in a nearby bush, about a fifteen-minute walk from the  town.

Inspector  Alvin James said the citizens did not inform the police about the situation  until  march 11 when the commissioner of Sanoyea District informed  the police  detail in Totota that a resident of  Gbonota went missing since February 28. A team was immediately dispatched to the town for search operations at which time Garmai’s body was discovered unrecognizable.

The local CSD Chief said during preliminary investigation on the crime scene, it was observed that a bush rope was tied in a tree suspended over the body of Bortee, suggesting that he may have committed suicide. According to Inspector James, officers at the crime scene were unable to determine the cause of death because of the decomposed condition of the body.

A Friend of the late Garmai Bortee informed  the police investigators that the day his colleague went  missing, they  both  had  a contract to  gather planks in the town from the bush, but  could not see Bortee at his house for several hours after a number of attempts to get him for the task.

The friend of the deceased said that after he waited to no avail, he started the job in anticipation of the arrival of Bortee, but to his disbelief  his friend was nowhere to be  found  until the news broke out that he had gone missing. In a related development, police in Bong County recently arrested a man in connection with the death of seventy-five year old woman.

Bigboy  David was apprehended  following the death of Lorpu  Naneh, whose body was found on her farm in David Town, Salala District. Making the disclosure, the Chief of Crime Services (CDS) of the Bong Country Police Detachment, noted that Bigboy had earlier denied any involvement in the death of the aging woman, but evidences gathered on the crime scene linked him to the commission of the crime.

Inspector Alvin James said, a cutlass retrieved from the crime scene was indentified to be the property of Bigboy. A steam of blood was also spotted on Bigboy’s shirt, but the accused claimed it was the water of a tree. The shirt in question was then sent to the Phebe Hospital for medical examination at which time it was confirmed   that the steam was actual blood.

The Body of Lorpu Naneh was deposited at the St. Kennedy Funeral Home in Gbarnga for a month, following which the government  took the initiative to under write  its burial which took place  on Saturday   March 26, 2011 in  David’s Town.

Bigboy David is currently lauquishing behind bars at the Gbarnga Central Prison awaiting legal prosecution. Several women have been murdered in Bong County  in recent years, notably  among them, Annie Kpakalah in Kpai District and Mary Kolleh in  Suakoko District.
