A 50-year old man was on Wednesday (May 27) found dead hanging on a rope in his sitting room at Lancaster, a suburb of Winneba.

Robert Yawson, a native of Winneba is suspected to have committed suicide.

Narrating the story, Chief Superintendent Samuel Asiedu Okanta, officer in charge of Winneba District Police Command said, one Madam Adwoa Gyamfua reported to the police that her Uncle Yawson, had hanged himself with a long blue rope in a ceiling in his sitting room.

The Commander said the District Police Investigation Team quickly rushed to the scene and saw the deceased, wearing a Blue Chelsea Jersey and a yellow short hanging on the rope in his room.

According to him the body was removed and after inspection, they detected that the deceased had a big sore on his left leg and both feet were swollen.

Chief Superintendent Okanta said, the Police took measurements of the scene and the body was later deposited at the Winneba Municipal Government Hospital Mortuary for preservation.

He further said that, their primary investigations revealed that the deceased returned from Ivory Coast to Winneba, a year ago with an illness which had been with him for about 15 years now.

Mr Okanta said investigations further revealed that all efforts made by the family to get the deceased healed had not been successful until the unfortunate incident.
