But even after her body was found in the septic tank in her matrimonial home, her husband, Francis Onebe told the police that the body was not that of his wife. This prompted the police to conduct Deoxyribonucleic Acid, also known as DNA test to identify the body. The results turned out positive.

After the DNA confirmation, relatives went to pick the body from Kampala Capital City Authority –KCCA morgue at Mulago and the body transported to her relatives’ home in Ochero on Friday.
