Forensic experts from the Ghana Police Service, have begun analysis of skulls and skeletons believed to be human parts found in a sack at Lartey-Akuapem.

The Akropong Divisional Police Commander, Sup. Danial Kojo Dzakah said the skeletons have been moved to Accra for forensic analysis.

" These items may be brought there by grave looters because it's an old skeleton, we've moved all to Accra for forensic investigation, my appeal is that people should be observant now that we are getting to Christmas, this is the time some of these things happen..."

Body parts discovered 

Police in the Eastern Region has this week uncovered a number of skulls and skeletal of human parts stuck in sacks and polythene bags.

The skeletons were found on a refuse dump in a valley at Lartey on the Akwapem Ridge in the Eastern Region.

According to the police, on November 7, 2019 a resident reported to the Akropong District Police Command about seeing human skeletal remains on a refuse dump.

The police in the company of the complainant went to the scene and found the human parts on the refuse dump.

The police after observation and inspection suspected that the bones were old and could have been dumped there for a longer period.

Preliminary investigation by the police suggests the human skeletal parts may have been dumped there by grave looters or estate developers.
