When he got back home, he went to the police to report that the child was missing and while the police started investigations and mounted a search for the boy, the man's wife told the police that she suspected her husband in the disappearance of their son as he was the one who went out with the child.

The man was promptly arrested and on interrogation, he confessed that he had killed the boy, cut off his head and foot on the instruction of a native doctor who wanted to perform a money ritual for him.
