Forensic Lab Examine Fingerprints Of Hot FM Finance Manager's 'Killers'
Fingerprints of alleged murderers of Nana Ndoli Panin III, Baamuhene of Enchi Kramokrom and Finance Manager of Hotfm, are being examined at the forensic laboratory.
Inspector John Baidoo, the prosecutor, said the fingerprints on the cutlass and bottles retrieved from the crime scene had also been added to the exhibits forwarded to the laboratory.
Inspector Baidoo said this would enable the Police to ascertain whether or not the fingerprints of the two accused marched up with those on the exhibits.
According to the prosecutor, the Police had also extended its investigation to the Mampong Herbal Research Centre to authenticate the alleged medicine found in a bottle at the hotel room.
