The discovery of the remains of a male adult in a state of decomposition along the Sakumono beach near Tema last Saturday has heightened hopes that they could be those of the hip-life musician, Theophilus Tagoe, aka Castro.
It was a discovery which fuelled speculations as to whether the body was that of Castro.
Even before a proper identification of the corpse could be made, news was making the rounds that Castro’s body had been discovered.
A police source has, however, stated that it is unlikely that the body of the well-built man, measuring some 1.7 metres, could be that of the musician who went missing alongside Janet Bandu, former contender in Multi-TV reality show, ‘I’m In Love With Bomaye,’ eight days ago at Ada, while skiing on the Volta Lake.
The remains of the adult male was found at a spot known as Mighty Beach and has been taken to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for possible identification and autopsy.
The man, believed to be in his early 30s, was found wearing only a pair of shots with his skin peeled off.
Some of the fisher folks, who earlier discovered the body, said they suspected it to be that of Castro’s.
A team of police personnel, comprising the Marine Police and the Accra Regional Police Headquarters, upon information about the discovery, went to the place.
Superintendent Cosmos Anyanah, CID Crime Scene boss, explained to DAILY GUIDE that the police had information about the body at about 4:00 pm on Saturday.
He said considering the state of the body, it could be concluded that it had been in the sea for some time now.
Officers went through a list of missing persons to establish whether the details matched what lay before them.
Police in Tema, with their counterparts at Ada, are leading a search for the two persons – Theophilus Tagoe and Janet Bandu – who went missing while jet skiing on the Volta Lake.
The police officer concluded that only a DNA could determine if the remains was that of Castro’s.
He indicated that family members of Castro were yet to be informed so that they could come and inspect the body to see if it is that of their missing relative.
If the body of the male adult found last Saturday is confirmed to be that of Castro’s, Ghanaians can then heave a sigh of relief that Janet Bandu would also be found.
