“Sir in terms of the night the body was found…residents have complained that the Police did not process the scene in terms of finding evidence…that when they went to the scene that night and when they went to the scene that morning they still found a clip belonging to Agripina Coc and also groceries on the ground covered in blood. What would be your response to that?”
