The second woman was found lying almost supine without panties.
The other lady had her ‘stretch’ trousers stripped to the thigh region, exposing her beads. She had no panties on.

“We found used condoms on the scene of the incident and some condoms in their bags when we searched their bags. But we cannot say they are commercial sex workers although we don’t know them,” Mr Amoako Asante said.
