The police have confirmed that investigations have started into the circumstances surrounding Emmanuel Gyamfi’s death, when some relatives made the shocking discovery on Tuesday, March 1.
A District Commander at Yamfo ASP Isaac Kwami Loh however said policemen deployed to the scene did not suspect foul play.
“He hanged himself last [Monday] night. He was discovered in the early hours of this [Tuesday] morning… Police have not found any foul play.
“There are no marks of assault on the body and so we are waiting for an autopsy report but this could be a pure case of suicide”, the police chief said.
The body of the 41-year-old man has been deposited at the Sunyani Government Hospital for preservation.
It is alleged that Gyamfi, who had been visually impaired for about a year, had attempted suicide but was rescued by his immediate family.
