The presence of the victim’s body alerted several residents of Mugitega village on Wednesday evening.

However, this did not prevent the corpse from spending the night there. It was recovered on Thursday morning by the police and local administration officials.

This information is confirmed by Joseph Nizigiyimana, the village chief of Mugitega who says that “the victim’s underwear was next to the body”.

He regrets that her identity is not known. No suspects have so far been apprehended. But the local administration announced the launch of an investigation. The young girl is said to have been raped before being killed, according to the first analyzes of the local police.

On February 10, two other corpses, that of Joseph Ngendakumana, 50 years old, and his wife Agnès Siniremera (48 years old) were discovered in Masango village in Mutaho district in this province, not far from the river Mubarazi.
