Luweero: Police in Luweero district are investigating a case of suspected murder and suicide that happened in Bajjo LC1, Nyimbwa Sub County.

The police spokesperson for Savannah Region, Sam Twiineamazima, has identified the deceased as Muwonge George William, 19, a brick maker, and Yiga Kevin, 6, a pupil at Bajjo Community Primary School, both residents of the above address.

It’s alleged that on November 19th, this year, Muwonge battered his young brother Yiga using a wire, and the conflict originated from a pumpkin that Yiga had come with from an unknown place. Muwonge was seen taking his brother to his rental room.

Twiineamazima told that Yiga never returned to his father’s house at night, where he was staying, adding that their father, only identified as Bukenya, was informed and went to the home of Muwonge, though he found the house locked.

‘’On Monday, Bukenya reported the matter to the LC1 chairperson and the defense, where he was advised to make some announcements to trace for his children,’’ he explained, adding that it’s today (Tuesday) when they were planning to break the house of Muwonge, his neighbor identified as Musingire Tom informed him that he smelled an unusual smell, removed the rag, torched under the door, and saw the hand of a person.

Immediately, Bukenya informed LC1, defense, and police, respectively.

Twiineamazima said upon receiving the information, the area defense chairperson, Katerega Fred, responded in time; unfortunately, they found dead bodies and had started decomposing a case of suspected murder, and suicide was registered.

He narrated that at the scene of the crime visited and documented by the SOCO and homicide squad from Bombo, a razor blade was recovered, blood stains were found, and suicidal rope and caning sticks were also recovered.

‘’Relevant statements were recorded, community policing was conducted, and the bodies were conveyed to the city mortuary in Mulago for postmortem examination,’’ the police officer said, adding that more inquiries are still at hand.
