Over the past weekend, news broke on how the architect had been arrested after dead bodies were discovered in his room at Alaska, in the Sunyani Municipality of the Bono region.

Initial reports said a teenager, related to the suspect, had gone missing following which a report was lodged with the police and a search was triggered.

It turned out that the missing person was last spotted with 28-year-old Richard Appiah, who was contacted by the police and the search party.

To deflect attention, Appiah also joined in the search and gave leads on possible places to find the missing boy.

At a point, it was suggested that the search party proceeds to his house following which the discovery of the bodies of the missing boy was made.

Further checks revealed the body of another teenager and a yet-to-be-identified adult and chopped body parts stocked in his fridge, police reports said.
