Police at old Kampala and Kawaala is investigating an incident where a yet to be identified body of a female adult was found dumped along the Northern bypass opposite Lubigi Sewage Plant on Friday.
Preliminary information from police indicates that the body appears to be of a 26 year old female adult. She was dressed in a nervy blue dress with green and cream stripes, she had long plaited hair.
According to Police, the body was thoroughly observed and it was noticed that the deceased could have been sexually assaulted because detectives found suspected sperms coming out of her private parts.
“So that means that she was probably raped from wherever she was and then the body transported and dumped,” said spokesperson CP Fred Enanga.
“There was no sign of struggle at the scene along the Northern bypass but the body indicated defence injuries and it could clearly show that she was fighting for her life and she also had bubbles that were oozing out of the mouth, indicating that she was suffocated to death,” Enanga added.
A team of investigators visited the scene and picked evidence from the body of the deceased and transported it to the city mortuary.
Till now, police says that they have not established the identity that could help trace backwards to her place of origin.
Enanga called upon members of the public from around Kawaala and Kawempe to report to police if they have a missing person with the said description especially the dress so that they can identify the body.
He further cautioned the people especially the women to avoid lone late night movements to avoid deadly criminal traps.
