Unidentified Woman Found Dead in Wetland

According to Samuel Baliraine, the area LC 1 chairperson, the body was discovered by farmers who were harvesting rice in the wetland. He says that the deceased is unknown in the area and believes that the perpetrators took advantage of the darkness at night to dispose of the body without being detected.
Police in Busoga East are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of an unidentified woman whose lifeless body was recovered from Lumbuye wetland in Unilila village in Nawaningyi sub-county in Iganga district.

The body was recovered on Monday, triggering panic among residents. The deceased’s body is lying at Iganga General Hospital mortuary pending a postmortem. The presence of multiple wounds on the body has raised suspicions that the woman was murdered elsewhere and dumped in the wetland in an attempt to conceal the crime.

According to Samuel Baliraine, the area LC 1 chairperson, the body was discovered by farmers who were harvesting rice in the wetland. He says that the deceased is unknown in the area and believes that the perpetrators took advantage of the darkness at night to dispose of the body without being detected.  

Yakubu Ndhaaye, the LC III chairperson of Nawaningyi sub-county has appealed to the police to increase foot patrols in the area to prevent similar cases of crime in dark and secluded places within the sub-county. Ndhaaye also revealed that earlier this year, security forces successfully cracked down on criminals through community sensitization campaigns, which encouraged residents to report any suspicious activities in their communities. 

He, however, says that there have been some recent lapses in security, necessitating renewed efforts to prevent crime. Diana Nandawula, the Busoga East Police spokesperson, revealed that investigations are ongoing to determine the exact cause of death. Nandawula urged the general public to provide any relevant information that could assist in identifying and apprehending the suspects, as well as ensuring a proper burial for the deceased.
