Frederick Owusu Sakyi – 33-Year-Old Ghanaian Man Arrested in U.S.A After Shooting and Killing Estranged Wife


A Ghanaian man was arrested in Walkerville, Maryland, in the United States of America after shooting and murdering his estranged wife at her workplace.

Frederick Owusu Sakyi approached ex-wife Tenisha Butler at work, then shot and murdered her!


According to officials, the pair was in the midst of divorcing, and Butler had obtained many protection orders against her ex-husband, who was following her.

Just after 11 p.m. Saturday, police were summoned to the Giant Food Grocery store at 3530 Sugarloaf Parkway in Walkerville for allegations of a gunshot.

They came to discover a lady deceased on the site, subsequently identified as Tenisha Butler. Butler was a Giant Food employee.

Police used security video from the retail mall and ring camera footage from neighbors to piece together what transpired.

“A lot of witnesses let us know that the suspect had fled in a vehicle,” Todd Wivell, spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, said.

“We had neighbors coming out throughout the night saying, ‘I have a Ring camera. If you need it you can use it.’”

Authorities began tracing the car of the accused killer, Frederick Owusu Sakyi, based on witness information.

“We were able to track that individual down within three hours. We found them in Columbia, Maryland, and we worked with the Howard County Police Department to pick him up,” Wivell said.

Deputies discovered a pistol in the front seat of Sakyi’s car and an assault weapon in the rear seat.

In a statement, Giant Food stated it was “with deep sadness” that they confirmed the event in the Urbana store’s parking lot.

“A little after 11 p.m., after store closing, there was a shooting that resulted in the death of an associate who appears to have been targeted. Our thoughts and prayers are with our associate and their family at this very difficult time,” the statement read in part.

“We are cooperating fully with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation, and the safety and well-being of our customers and associates continue to be our top priorities,” the statement continued.
