A housewife’s body was on Wednesday last, discovered floating in Bun Sugar Creek, North West District, Region One.
The body identified to be that of Melinda Henry, 29, was discovered by her father-in-law and brother-in-law.
According to police reports, on Tuesday evening, Henry was imbibing alcohol with her husband, 59, a mechanic at their camp.
Sometime later, he reportedly left the woman and went to visit her father some distance away.

Police accompanied him back to the scene where the body was retrieved.
It was observed by the ranks that there were notable bruises on the body’s upper right thigh.
Henry’s body was further examined by a medic and transported to the Port Kaituma’s Hospital Mortuary.
