A body of a 15-year-old girl, found in a field covered with grass, is believed to have been killed by a man who was living with her illegally, who first stabbed her and cut her finger.

Dusabe Chantal’s body was found this week in Butimba Village, Kawangire Cell in Rukara Sector in Kayonza District.

Executive Secretary of Rukara Sector, Nkunzurwanda John told IGIHE that three of her neighbors had been arrested, while the man with whom they live, who is the main suspect has disappeared.

The girl’s body was found naked, suspected of having problems with the man they were living with illegally, which culminated into the tragedy.

“She was stabbed, three fingers were cut off. She was stabbed in the mouth, and in the armpit; it’s clear that her fingers were cut off in self-defense. After killing her, they took her to a field and covered her with grass so that she could not immediately be found. It seems she was killed on Saturday.”

The victim had dropped out of school in her fourth year of primary school and had given birth to a child last year.

Authorities have not yet established the identity of the suspect.

The body of the deceased was taken to Gahini Hospital for a postmortem before burial.
