Suspect Kollie who is believed to be in his early 18 noted that he was in route to the  LPMC Community when he was asked by Andrew Paye to get Courage Flomo from the day care school for an indentify reason.

Instructors at the day care school became to know when they interrogated suspect Kollie who had gone to knap little Courage.

“He came and asked us to allow student Courage to go with him, but because he appeared strange, we were eager to have asked him but his explanation was not interested and that’s how we got to know,” Nancy Korkollie the Proprietress of the Day Care School told our Bong County Contributor.
