Police has said the woman found dead in Kitala, Entebbe road on Sunday morning died of natural causes and not murder as reported by some media houses and social media users.
According to a statement from the Police Spokesperson, AIGP Asan Kasingye, the body of the woman which was found had no signs of sexual assault or strangulation hence no possibility of murder.
“The police visited the scene of crime and preliminary investigation shows that the woman who has been sick and is known to the people in the areas could have died from lack of food and collapsed dead at night,” Kasingye states.
He continues: “She had been feeding on leftovers from the dustbins in the area. Preliminary report shows death by natural causes. The body had no signs of sexual assault or strangulation.”
According to the same statement, the body of the woman has been taken to Mulago Hospital for Post Mortem.
“The police therefore ask the general public to ignore alarmist false reports on social media on this case as they can cause unnecessary panic. We will provide a comprehensive report once the investigations are concluded.”
Over the past months, there have been lots of murders in the same area, especially on woman who are first raped before being brutally murdered.
The Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura had visited the place recently and pinned a businessman to the murders who he said was masterminding the deaths for his ritual satisfaction to get more wealth.
