(LINA) – The Bong County Police Detachment says it has invited several persons for questioning in connection with the ‘mysterious’ death of little Jacob Jackson.
The two year-old boy went missing on February 11 at a charcoal production site in Fehla, Salala District and was discovered dead a week later with several body parts extracted, according to the coronary jury report.
According to the jury and eyewitness reports, little Jackson’s esophagus, tongue, eyes and penis were extracted.
Speaking to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Gbarnga Tuesday, Bong Police Detachment Commander Fredrick Nappy said no one has been arrested in connection with the killing and that those being questioned were in the vicinity on the day the child went missing.
The Police Chief is at the same time appealing to the public to assist with information that will lead to the arrest of those responsible for the death of the child.
Little Jackson’s mother, Martha Kerkulah, told LINA in Fehla on Wednesday that the incident occurred when she instructed her six-year-old daughter to take the little boy to the main kitchen to wait for her, but that he refused to follow his sister and later returned to her.
According to Martha, the little child was captured by his killers in a little bush few meters away from the charcoal production site after she forgot about him due to her concentration on bagging the coal.
Martha said her son was found on Friday, February 19, in a creek far away from where he disappeared with his head decayed beyond recognition.
In a related development, a search for the two teenagers who went missing in Bong Mines, Fuamah District, Bong County is continuing.
According to police, the children went missing in December last year while returning school.
