Girl, 11, Found Dead, Possibly Raped

first_imgEleven-year-old Veronica Youhn Luogon has been found dead in a swamp near Bueh, few kilometers from the commercial city of Saclepea on Bahn highway, in Nimba County.According to family sources, Veronica was a student attending one of the schools in Saclepea, but on January 14 had gone to visit relatives in Bueh Town where she reportedly went missing. The body of the victim was later  found to be buried in a nearby swamp on January 15, 2019.John Quewon, a family spokesperson, told Radio Saclepea, a community radio, that the lifeless body of Veronica was found mutilated. It was later suspected that the victim had been sexually abused before her death, though Quewon did not quote any medical report.Quewon said the family is looking up to the government for a speedy investigation into the death of his niece, who they believe might have been “gang-raped” to death.The deceased hailed from Kpei Town in the Yarpea Administration District but was staying with relatives in Saclepea, while pursuing her education.Arthur Gonkatee Sahn, Saclepea Statutory District Superintendent, confirmed the incident. Sahn said the girl did not die of natural death; rather, there is a possibility of “foul play.”Following the examination of the body, Sahn said the 15-member coroner-jury his office constituted to examine the body reported that the girl had been sexually harassed and mutilated by her assailants.The Liberia National Police (LNP) are said to be probing the incident.However, incidents involving murder are not new in Saclepea. A  few years ago, when a little girl went missing in Gbar Chiefdom, it took several weeks to discover her whereabouts until a witch doctor was contacted, after which her remains was found.Up to press time last night, it was not clear as to what became of the case, because circumstances that linked those arrested in connection to the incident was based on findings from a witch doctor, something police declined to use as evidence, saying that it was “unscientific.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

WWE: Samoa Joe wins Fatal 5-Way, faces Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire for Universal Championship

first_imgSamoa Joe overcame the odds to win the Fatal 5-Way at Extreme Rules and became the No.1 contender for Brock Lesnar’s Universal title at RAW’s exclusive Pay-per-view WWE Great Balls of Fire.Joe got the better of Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt to earn his title shot.In an exciting match where everybody got their moments to shine, Joe and Wyatt looked the most destructive. The pair formed a partnership, hammering the other three at will to take an advantage.However, the deadly partnership didn’t last long enough as they started trading blows once the other three were cleared off.Balor, Rollins and Reigns held their own and made strong comebacks once the barrage was over and each had their moments.Ultimately, Joe did the smart thing when he choked Balor off after the Irishman had nailed Reigns with a Coup De Grace and won via referee stoppage.This is Joe’s first title shot in the main roster since making his debut on RAW earlier this year. The Samoan submission machine came out of the blues and blasted Rollins and injured him when the latter was challenging Triple H for a match at Wrestlemania.Since then, Joe has worked with Hunter and there has been indications of him working with Triple H and Kevin Owens to form a deadly faction like Evolution in the earlier part of the 2000s. However, that fizzled out as Owens moved to Smack Down Live in a superstar shake-up and since then Joe has been competing and winning in singles matches.advertisementThe WWE is providing Joe with a big push and it works out well for the company because by the looks of it, Joe can match up to Lesnar in terms of strength and can put up a good match.It won’t be easy for the ‘Beast Incarnate’ as he has not featured much since beating Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33 for the title.The two will slog it out on July 9 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.”I am more than prepared to take myself to that very deep, dark, violent place…” – @SamoaJoe on challenging @BrockLesnar #RAWTalk pic.twitter.com/NFKF5lE5ul- WWE (@WWE) June 5, 2017last_img read more
