MONROVIA, Feb. 23 (LINA) – The Liberia National Police (LNP) has begun investigation into an alleged burglary that occurred at the home of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott on Wednesday night, leading to the death of one of her children.

Speaking at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) regular press briefing Thursday, Moses Cater, the official spokesman of the Liberia National Police confirmed reports of the incident at the Brewersville residence of the former Chief Justice.

Madam Scott, who is now under appropriate police protection, according to the LNP, reported some days ago in a radio interview that her family had experienced several attempts from suspected burglars to enter her home at night. This report led to an increase in police patrol in the area.

Preliminary findings from the police confirmed that the incident occurred on Wednesday night at about 9:30 p.m., as narrated by Madam Scott, who further revealed that a man who was part of a crew she hired to carry out some construction work at her residence remained hidden inside at the end of the work day, while his colleagues had retired for the day.

The man, who Former Chief Justice Scott said she had observed during the day of looking somewhat “strange”, attacked her family at night and killed one of her daughters when he was tackled.

The Preliminary investigation by the LNP shows no evidence of a break-in which somehow corroborates the suspicion of Madam Scott that the intruder may have concealed himself in her home.

The police confirmed that they are currently in search of the suspected robbers and urge the public to come forth with any information that will aid the investigation.
