Residents of Kyakatagwa village in Kabira sub-county retrieved the deceased’s body from the river on Wednesday morning after searching the whole of Tuesday in vain.

Richard Kalanzi, the Kabira LC III Chairperson, says that the girl's parents dragged her boyfriend to police for spoiling their daughter. 

He says the furious teenager warned to end her life if her lover was not released immediately. 

Kalanzi has appealed to residents to always seek counsel from the local authorities on family matters that are beyond their control.   

Judith Akello, the Kyotera District Police Commander (DPC), says investigations are still on.
