MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Justice, has requested the immediate conduct of autopsy on the bodies of Princess Cooper and Melvin Togba, in order to establish what led to their deaths.
Ms. Cooper was discovered dead on March 24, 2022, at the ELWA Junction in Paynesville, in a compound believed to be owned by the Fawaz Building Materials Store, while Mr. Togba was found dead in his bed room in Jallah Town, the same day.
In a statement issued on Saturday, March 26, 2022, the Government said although an initial report by the Liberian National Police (LNP) Coroner and Forensic Team is available, the conduct of an autopsy will help establish the actual cause of death.
The statement further said that Liberian pathologists Benedict Kolee and Zoebon Kparteh have been asked to carry out independent post-mortem examinations on the remains of the two.
The Liberian Government has, however, conveyed its deepest sympathy to the families to the deceased and assured them of a speedy investigation.
