There are signs of information coming to light of a mysterious murder which had taken place in the Tissamaharama area eight years ago.
The Lunugamvehera Police had received a complaint on the 31st of December 2002 that a youth from Maha-aluthgam-Aara area in Suriyawewa had disappeared. Information on the incident is now being bared following a statement made to the Police by the person who committed the murder. Excavations commenced yesterday in search of the body, based on an order given by the Tissamaharama Magistrate. Although the location where the suspect buried the body was a shrub at that time, it has now developed into a paddy field. As such it was not possible to determine the exact location. Police security has been provided to site until excavations are undertaken during a future date.
