There was shock and pain among residents of Assin Fosu in the Central Region when news broke out about a twenty-seven female teacher who hanged herself to death last Wednesday afternoon.

The deceased held a Bachelor’s degree in Education who was newly posted teacher at Mankessim Nkwanta Basic School.
Believed to be a member of the Church of Later Day Saints, the bible texts she left behind were Luke 15:1 and Genesis 28:20.
Her body has been deposited at the morgue of St. Francis Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu for autopsy.
