However, she was submitted to tests that proved she had not been pregnant. Local media also report that a knife and penknife were found in her handbag.
The police said the suspect had been pretending to be pregnant and was seen in the victim’s company the day before the crime.

However, the family did not believe she was capable of committing such a crime.
Pamella left behind a husband and a two-year-old son.
