Police receive interim report on Stacy Offei Darko’s ‘murder’

The prosecution led by Chief Inspector Simon Apiorsornu told the court that the AG has directed the police to ascertain certain facts and report back for the final advice, the Ghana News Agency reports.

Stacy passed on at the Obengfo Hospital last year after reporting to the facility to check up on her health.

The court presided over by Aret Nsemoh adjourned the matter to February 12.

The CEO of the hospital, Dominic Kwame Obeng-Andoh, is in court for allegedly murdering Offei-Darko.

The second accused, Edward Amponsah, who is a cleaner at the hospital, has also been charged with impersonation contrary to section 134 of the criminal offences Act 29.

Last year, an Accra High Court granted a bail application by Dr Obeng-Andoh with two sureties.

Presenting the facts of the case, the prosecution said on May 20 last year, Stacy went to Obeng-Andoh’s hospital for a Liposuction and fat Transfer surgery, but she died at about 16:00 hours the following day.

Her body was sent to three different mortuary facilities on May 22 but was rejected because no member of the deceased family was present.

The second accused, Amponsah, subsequently sent the body to Saint Gregory Hospital Mortuary at Buduburam where he falsely presented himself to the Morgue Attendant as the biological brother of Stacy and thus authorised that the body be embalmed.

The body was kept in the morgue without the knowledge of the deceased’s family, the prosecution said.

The family is said to have gotten hint of the matter on May 24 and reported the matter to police.
