Sad Twist After a Suspect In Journalist's Murder Jumps From The 8th Floor Of a Nairobi Building

Yesterday, Kenyans woke up to scary and sad news that a famous Journalist had been killed in cold blood in one of the Nairobi hotels.

However according to news updates, the prime suspect in the murder of Kate Mitchell, a British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) manager, was found dead by police officers.

According to Nairobi regional police commander Augustine Nthumbi, the suspect jumped off the eighth floor of the hotel room through the room's window in order to evade the hotel security officers.

He, however, jumped to his death and his body was later retrieved by police.

The Nairobi police boss, however, pointed out that detectives are still concluding investigations in order to determine whether he is the actual murder suspect of the BBC journalist. After a postmortem is conducted on Mitchell's body, a report will be released with details of the hotel's incident. 

Mitchell, who was in charge of BBC Media Action's Senior Projects in the Ethiopian office, was found dead in her hotel room on Friday evening, November 19. 

She had over 14 years within BBC and was highly acknowledged by her peers for her extensive work in Zambia, South Sudan and most recently in Ethiopia.
