Preliminary results of an autopsy on Buleya Lule, a key suspect in the abduction of a person with albinism, shows that he was electrocuted and hit with a metal bar.
The report has been filed by Jorge Kirk from South Africa who worked together with local pathologists Charles Dzamalala and Tamiwe Tomika.
According to the report, Buleya suffered three main injuries but electrocution was chief cause of his death.
The post-mortem also shows he suffered bleeding in the brain as a result of being hit by a metal bar.
According to the three experts, Buleya suffered injuries on buttocks but the cause is yet to be analysed.
Meanwhile, some tissue samples have been taken to South Africa for further studies. DNA samples have also been to taken to identify people who killed Buleya.
APAM President Overstone Kondowe says a full report is expected to be out in two weeks.
Buleya who was a key suspect in the killing of a 14 year old boy with albinism died mysteriously on Thursday.
According to spokesperson for Lilongwe Police Kingsley Dandaula, the suspect was reported unwell and they rushed him to Kamuzu Central where he passed on.
Two other suspects who admitted abducting the boy – Goodson Makanjira – told a court in Lilongwe on Wednesday that Buleya promised to give them K800,000 for kidnapping the boy.
The suspects who included Goodson’s stepfather Kumbilani Patson said the boy was given to Buleya alive.
The boy who was abducted from his house over a week ago is still missing and the two suspects told the court they do not know whether Goodson was alive or not.
However, Buleya did not disclose where he took the boy to or if he paid the said K800, 000 to people who abducted the boy.
APAM said yesterday that the death of Buleya is a setback in their quest for justice.
