Police in Kampala are investigating circumstances under which William Mukasa, a resident of Kawaala, Rubaga Division, in Kampala went missing and was found killed a week later.
Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Mr Luke Owoyesigyire, said Mukasa was reported missing by his mother over a week ago and a hunt for his whereabouts started.
The deceased’s mother told police that his son had been missing and his phones were off.
Nevertheless, locals in Kawaala found unknown body dumped by the roadside this week and alerted police.
Police picked the unknown body and took it at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) morgue and after waiting for some days, his mother decided to crosscheck with the mortuary and was able to identify her son’s body among others.
Mr Owoyesigyire said that a hunt for people who could have killed Mukasa has been intensified.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the deceased was severely beaten which could have led to his death before his body was dumped near his home in Kawaala.
Our officers are still doing investigations and we shall be informing you in case we get more details,” he said.
