The national women wing of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change will lead a week of mourning for the murder of the daughter of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott, party Chairman Mulbah Morlu said Thursday in Monrovia.

Morlu told reporters government should conduct autopsy to determine the actual cause of death amidst controversy, speculations and the victim’s family refusal to assist the police with the investigation.

“Where a crime takes place that place is called a crime scene and that place is squarely for investigators to probe and establish the actual happenings. For the chief justice to instruct her people not to help with the investigation is worrisome,” he said.

Morlu’s party colleague, Jefferson Koijee who doubles as CDC National Secretary General and Mayor of Monrovia is pinpointed as the mastermind of the alleged attack, which resulted in the death of the girl. Koijee has rejected all allegations, availing himself to the police for probe and putting a bounty up for the culprits.

The former Chief Justice is a member of the opposition community and serves as a lawyer in a political dispute case involving the crisis-prone Liberty Party.
