Police begin investigations into murder at a hotel in Accra

 According to the police, an unidentified man booked a room in the hotel and spent the night with the deceased

Police in the Accra Region are currently investigating the murder of an unidentified woman who was found dead in a hotel room at Kokomlemle in the Greater Accra Region.

 The body of the deceased, believed to be in her mid-thirties, was found a day after an unidentified man booked a room in the hotel, where both of them spent the night.

DSP Efia Tenge, head of public affairs unit of the Accra Regional Command said the male client left the next day and did not return, but on Wednesday 3 March 2021, the operators of the hotel broke into the room and saw the female visitor motionless on the bed.

She said the police visited the crime scene when management of the hotel called to report the incident at about 1530 hours last Wednesday.

DSP Tenge said the police proceeded to the scene at the hotel and saw a lady of about 35 years, lying dead in the room.

DSP Tenge said there was no form of identification of the deceased and that management of the hotel had poor record keeping.

“They failed to write details of their clients in the book even though they had one for that purpose. The hotel did not also have a CCTV coverage that would have helped investigations,” she said

DSP Tenge said investigations have meanwhile commenced and crime scene experts have visited the scene.

She said efforts were underway to identity the deceased as investigations continue.
