In Grand Gedeh County: Boyfriend Shoots Fiancée To Death

Flash Back: Man Handcuffed

Reports from Geewon in Lower Grand Gedeh County say a 35 year-old lady identified only as ‘Baby Girl’ was shot dead by her boyfriend Lawrence Toe with a single barrel shotgun.

The reports say the incident occurred recently in the bush where they had gone on a hunting expedition.

According to residents of the area, the shooting of the 35 year-old lady was prompted by her refusal to have sex with her boyfriend in the bush.

Alex Krejardiah, a hunter who was also in the team, said after the lady was shot, they managed to intervene, and met her crying and asking them for help.

He said ‘Baby Girl’ explained in detail what transpired between them to the two hunters before she died.

After shooting his girlfriend, the alleged perpetrator attempted to shoot his colleagues who went on the scene, threatening that if anyone made a move he would shoot them too; but he later escaped into the bush.

Meanwhile, family members of the deceased and residents of the area are calling on the community and nearby towns and villages, as well as the Liberia National Police to find and bring the alleged perpetrator to bock.
