The body of a fisherwoman named Yarramma was found decomposed and plastered to a wall in a house at Reddykancharapalem on Tuesday.
The macabre discovery was made after residents called up police and told them about a horrid stink emanating from the house. Police broke into the house and found the body of the woman, partially decomposed and plastered to a wall in kitchen. Investigation results revealed the body to be that of a fisherwoman named Yarramma, aged 45, who was reported missing on Feb 12 by her husband Apparao.
The family members of the fisherwoman said she sells fish everyday and usually lends money to people for interest, including one Vasu, who is suspected to be behind her death. The accused, Vasu, has reportedly borrowed money from Yarramma and failed to repay her on time. After being asked for the money several times, Vasu allegedly asked her to meet, since when she had gone missing.
The locals said Yarramma stayed in the house with her husband and son, and that they were a peaceful family who never used to fight. They complained that the policemen have neither conducted a search nor taken any action when she was initially reported missing on February 12.
