Prime Suspect: Patrick Agaba aka Pato
Susan was kidnapped on February 7 2018 and her car found abandoned at their gate with all her phones. Her killers then contacted the family and demanded $1m dollars (about sh3.65b) before they could release her. After three weeks, her body was recovered dumped on the Southern Bypass and during her requiem mass, the family revealed that her killers had chopped off her ﬁngers and sent them together with a recording of the incident to the family. The family paid a ransom of $200,000 (UGX 700m) in the hope that Magara would be released but only to receive lifeless body.
