The suspect, Abraham Bekoe, in his late twenties is alleged to have had constant phone contacts with the deceased policewoman from the morning until her death in the hotel room.
Another person who police are yet to establish a link to the gruesome murder is a coffin manufacturer, Kwasi Agyemang.
The policewoman Number 8099 stationed at the Nkawkaw Divisional Quartermaster Stores was found dead in one of the rooms at Misiho Hotel, Akwasiho near Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region.
The Nkawkaw Divisional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Mr Kofi Adu who last week promised a tango dance with the assailants of the young policewoman popularly known among her colleagues as ‘Rasta’ confirmed the latest development to the press.
According to ACP, Mr Adu, the Police Headquarters in Accra dispatched a deployment of crack detectives from the Anti Armed Robbery Unit (AARU) to augment their local strength.
He went on that the combined team with assistance from external collaborators managed to trace Bekoe to his restaurant and pub base at Nkawkaw Hotel Junction where he was apprehended.
The police boss continued that a search conducted on the home of the prime suspect, Bekoe, led to the discovery of six (6) different DV License plates in his possession.
Police investigation, according to ACP, Mr Adu revealed that Bekoe was the only person who called deceased in the morning, followed with subsequent ones at short intervals until she got to the hotel.
He also stated that after L/Cpl Sandra died, the suspect drove her boyfriend’s stolen vehicle to the Asuogya suburbs and parked at a closed-ended street, locked it and left.
As though by divine intervention, someone went to tip a trip of construction material behind the parked car and so it could not be moved away, the police boss stated.
Continuing with the tango dance, Mr Adu went on that the AARU is also collaborating with forensic science experts in the analysis of finger impressions on the retrieved vehicle.
Stay tuned as police delve into the suspected involvement of a coffin manufacturer.
If confirmed, it would point to the possibility of a planned secret burial of the body.
