Nana Baffuor-Awuah

The cause of death of Nana Kwasi Baffour-Awuah, a Ghanaian student of Iowa College in the US who was found dead on campus is yet to be known, the Chicago Tribune has reported.

The report cited Assistant Decorah Police Chief Dave Smutzler as saying that the police department is waiting for the autopsy and toxicology reports about the cause of death.

Smutzler added that authorities won’t speculate on the matter but rather continue conducting thorough investigations to get more information on the matter.

The body of Kwasi Baffour-Awuah, a student of the Luther College in the Iowa State was found Saturday in the snow on the baseball diamond on campus.

A prayer vigil was held Monday for Baffour-Awuah, who had stayed on campus with other international students over the winter break.

  1. Interesting and it always the case for such brilliant students that nobody knows what happen.
    Ghanaians should be on guard not to spend their holidays on campus and not advertising yourself too much, I can tell you there is haters out there. Very sad for such brilliant student and Ghana as well as the world especially the youth need such person as nabby.

  2. What exactly does this comment mean, Busha T? How weird that you are blaming his death on “haters”. Let us find out the truth before speculating. Sounds like he was a very well liked man.

  3. The truth is, he probably got too drunk on new years eve and passed out on the baseball field and froze to death. People are not out to get students from Ghana. Everyone Loved him very much. He was a really popular student
