According to Bernard, the deceased was last seen by a local resident identified as Kehida Marycent in Rutenga trading centre Rutenga sub-county in the night boarding a Toyota Wish vehicle she could not easily recognize by registration number, heading to Kabale from Kihihi town council.

Elly Maate, the police spokesperson for Kigezi region, confirms that the victim has today been discovered dead in Mitooma district.

Maate also says that preliminary investigations indicate that the deceased was murdered. He adds that investigations into the matter are ongoing.
