The incident which occurred on Tuesday, March 22 is said to have sent shivers down the spines of residents of Hwereso and its environs.
The murderer, 25, raped the girl and later butchered her in the full glare of the victim’s mother and another lady.
Laear Baman, the Ejisu Divisional Police Commander told the Daily Graphic that the assailant later committed suicide at the Boankra Inland Port by allegedly drinking a poisonous substance.
According to an account of the victim’s mother, a machete wielding Azure broke into their room unexpectedly and stated he was going to die but would ensure he also killed someone before his death.
The man who also had in his hands a hammer threatened them that he was going to kill them if they prevented him from having sex with the student.
The student realizing that Azure meant his word, gave in to his request.
Immediately after having sex with the girl, Azure inflicted machete wounds between her breasts and asked her mother and the other lady in the room to turn and face the window, after which he started inflicting knife wounds on the mother of the deceased.
The other lady, quickly pushed the door open and fled whilst shouting for help. A pursuing Azure who realised that a number of people were rushing to the scene, changed his mind and fled.
The police who arrived on the scene later, had to rush the injured mother to a nearby hospital and mounted a manhunt for the culprit.
The search led them to the culprit's room where they retrieved the bloodstained machete.
When the police were on their way to deposit the body of the young lady at the morgue, they were informed that a body of a young man had been found at Boankra.
