The woman who allegedly killed her five children through food poisoning died at the Police Hospital in Accra in the early hours of yesterday.
The Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Godfred Asiamah, who confirmed this, said the cause of Georgina Pipson’s death was yet to be established.
Pipson was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, because of her condition after she was found lying semiconscious in a vehicle near the Accra College of Education at Madina in Accra.
Dr Asiamah said the police were earlier expected to visit the Accra Psychiatric Hospital to investigate the history of the deceased, adding, “it’s unfortunate she passed away.”
The deceased was said to have not uttered a word to anyone since her admission to the hospital. Residents of Gomoa Nyanyano in the Central Region woke up last Monday, January 4, 2010, to the tragic story of five children suspected to have been killed through poisoning by their mother.
The bodies of the five children – Kwaku Osae Asante, 11, Yaw Ofori Asante, 9, Angel Asante, 6, Kofi Asante, 4, and Esi, 1, the only child she had with a different man – are now at the Police Hospital morgue pending autopsy. Dr Asiamah said the autopsy on the children was still ongoing and expressed the hope that the results would be ready by next week.
