The head of a young boy aged between 5 – 10 has been dumped in garbage disposal bin at the Tradex – Eleveur neighbourhood this Monday, 27th August 2018.
In the early hours of the day, residents found a carton in a bin close to a Tradex pumping station.
A resident who discovered the content of the carton immediately raised an alarm.
It was total consternation from the crowd that clustered around, shocked by the hideous act involving a young child.
Law enforcement officers and municipal authorities from the Yaounde 5th district were called in.
The body part was taken to the Yaounde General Hospital mortuary.
Investigations have been opened to identify the victim and determine the circumstances his death.
Others speculate that the murder must have been committed in a remote area.
This version gains more credence because no family has come up complaining of a missing child.
In the meantime, the social media as expected, was very active.
Gruesome posts of the bodyless human head immediately went viral as if it was an ordinary event.
Administrative authorities and law enforcement officers are counting on the collaboration of the population to elucidate this unsolved mystery.
