When the mother saw her son hanging, she raised an alarm and neighbours assisted to carry the deceased to the Assin Fosu Hospital mortuary.

The mother was shocked because she said her son didn’t show signs that he had any challenge or problem that would warrant such an act.

Some neighbours indicated John had a good voice and had sung at church the day he died.
