DCI Detectives Visit The Apartment Where LGBTQ Activist Edwin Chiloba Lived Before His Brutal Death

DCI detectives visit the apartment where LGBTQ activist Edwin Chiloba lived

The motive for his death still remains unclear even as detectives try to piece together circumstances surrounding it.

The killing of Chiloba has reignited debate about LGBTQ rights in Kenya.

Chief government pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor has released the results of the post mortem conducted on the late Edwin Chiloba.

According to the autopsy, Chiloba, whose real name is Edwin Kiprotich Kiptoo, died of Asphyxia.

Asphyxia is a condition in which there is a lack of oxygen supply and an excess of carbon dioxide in the body.

Oduor also said that they observed discoloration in Chiloba's fingernails, indicating that he was lacking oxygen when he died.

Five suspects linked to the murder and disposal of the body of LGBTQ Activist Edwin Kiptoo Chiloba will remain in police custody for 21 more days as police complete investigations.

More analysis will be conducted to determine whether Edwin was drugged as pathologists question why he did not resist the smothering.

The court in Eldoret directed that the five persons led by prime suspect Jackton Odhiambo remain in custody to allow police to carry out more investigations and arrest more suspects linked to the murder.
