DCI Homicide detectives have launched investigations into the twin murder of an 18-year-old man and his girlfriend, whose bodies were found in Kamukunji, Nairobi.
Search for the two by the young man’s grandfather started after their mobile phones went unanswered for days.
The 18-year-old’s guardian from Seychelles, who has been paying their rent and occasionally stayed with them in the same apartment, had also attempted calls that were not answered.
This triggered the grandfather to show up at his kin’s door, only to be met by a foul smell emanating from the inside of a locked door.
“The door had been locked from outside using a padlock,” said DCI.
On realizing that something was amiss, he alerted the police, who arrived immediately and gained entry.
To the shock of all, signs of vehement struggle at the living room and a bloody floor across a corridor leading to the restroom and the bedroom.
“As police tip-toed across the rooms cautious enough not to disturb the scene, just by the toilet lay the lifeless body of a young woman soaked in blood,” stated the DCI.
Visible were multiple stabs on the shoulder, breasts, lower abdomen, protruding intestines, and her hands fastened from behind with a piece of cloth.
The man’s body was found on the floor in the bedroom with the neck tied with an auxiliary cable.
His hands had too been tied to the back with a piece of cloth, had multiple stab wounds on the back, and a deep cut at the back of the neck.
Some household items were missing, including a 43″ TV set, two laptops, a music system, and the victims’ mobile phones.
Crime scene investigators processed the scene for crucial leads and secured exhibits, with the homicide detectives folding their sleeves in a relentless endeavor to unearth the mystery behind the killing and bring the perpetrator(s) to the unforgiving arm of the law.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
