The moment the police acted, Kwame Krampah (Awana), the lover of the deceased Judith Kpeglo, was taken into custody.
During questioning, Krampah admitted to killing the young woman in the late afternoon of July 11 and disposing of her body in a nearby thicket that evening. Police officers were then taken to the grave by him. Following an exhumation of the remains pursuant to a court order, it was placed in the mortuary of the Police Hospital for preservation and autopsy.
