According to Turyasingura, after having supper on Wednesday night his mother convinced him to commit suicide by drowning in the dam before the ailment he was suffering from took his life and leave her behind suffering.

Bushara village Chairperson LC 1 Robert Kateeba says that the deceased used to pick milk from him every morning but never showed up which forced him to take the milk himself only to find the son Turyasingura very wet and muddy.
