…Mysterious death…blood stains…British national found dead at Barmoi Hotel


British man Alexander Wing, 42, was discovered lying dead in his suit at Hotel Barmoi in Freetown believed to have been murdered.

Wing was found by a hotel staff at Barmoi Hotel in Aberdeen on Sunday, 24 July.

The British man was employed by ALATAS UK Service Department in Sierra Leone before he met his gruesome death.

According to investigation by Public Review, a female Sierra Leonean Bintu Naomi Olu-Jones of 28 Regent Road, Freetown, and the Finance Manager of the Integrated Services Solution, Sierra Leone Ltd, informed the police at Aberdeen on the same day.

 A team of homicide police detectives headed by Detective Inspector Hassan Dumbuya carried out routine inspection of the murder scene and took some photos.

Wing was lying in a pool of blood; his face splattered with fresh blood and had defecated. Electrical cables were strewn across the room in a suspicious manner. It was as though Mr. Wing had been beaten to death. His remains were transported to the Connaught Hospital, where a post-mortem examination would be carried out.

Speaking to Mr. Yaya Fofanah, a Barmoi Hotel worker, he confirmed that indeed the British man died in his room. However, they are yet to identify his cause of death.

Yaya Fofanah said police has begun their investigation into Mr. Wing’s death, which appears somewhat suspicious. 

CID Headquarters are now involved in the matter and one suspect, Sia Gbonda being on duty at Reception at the time that the murder was committed.  

CEO, Mr Sheku Tejan Kamara of Barmoi Hotel declined saying anything to a Public Review reporter on hone.
