According to Vanguard Newspaper, a staff of a hotel, which the deceased and other girls used as their base, said:
“The truth is that she was a hustler.
I came to the office and I was told that she left on Monday and had not returned. When they called her phone, it would ring and then go off. I suggested that we go to the Police to report the matter.
I called Aduwawa Police Station and officers asked for her picture. I was waiting for her picture when we heard that a dead body was discovered along Upper Mission Extension. We ran down there and discovered that it was her. She used to hustle on Old Road in Aduwawa.
Her friend also said she left home on Monday and could not be reached since.
