Varsity Student Found Dead In Boyfriend's House

Reading Time: 1 minute

The Body of a university student was found in a house in Nakuru, Northwest of Nairobi, on Monday morning.

The lifeless body of Phyllis Jepleting, a Maths/Biology first-year student at Karatina University, was found inside Ezra Kipkemoi's house at Naka Estate, Nakuru County, by detectives from the office of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

Anthony Sunguti, the head of the Nakuru County DCI, said the body was found after neighbours complained about a bad smell coming from Mr. Kipkemoi's home.

They called the cops, who broke down the door with the help of welders and neighbours and discovered Ms Jepleting's lifeless body on the bed. The body had blood oozing from the mouth, nose and ears.

They used Ms. Jepleting's identifying papers, which were found at the site and were used to identify her body.

Her body was sent to the mortuary at Nakuru Level Five Hospital while a post-mortem was performed to ascertain how she passed away.
The deceased was reported missing a few days before.

"His phone is switched off and neighbours say he was last seen on December 26," said Sunguti.

Kikpemoi is alleged to be the deceased's boyfriend, and a manhunt for him has been launched.

The deceased is the second university student to have been discovered dead in her boyfriend's home after Victoria Muthoni Theuri, who was found there last week in Kahawa Wendani, Kiambu County, central Kenya.
