Police have revealed new details relating to the suspected murder of Kenyan-born Bahrain athlete, Damaris Muthee Mutua. The athlete was found dead yesterday in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet, locked inside her boyfriend's house. The athlete was found dead after a foul smell was discovered emanating from the house.
The Keiyo North Deputy County Commissioner, Julius Maiyo said that the boyfriend of Damaris Muthee is the main suspect in the murder.
It also emerged that the Ethiopian boyfriend reportedly fled from Kenya on Saturday, April 16. It is suspected that this is the same day Damaris Muthee was murdered.
Keiyo North Deputy County Commissioner also revealed that police officers had traced suspect's recent phone calls to Ethiopia, although details relating to the phone calls remain scanty.
The security officers have also revealed more details about what they noticed on slain Damaris Muthee's body. According to the police, there were no visible injuries on the victim's body which had begun decomposing. The police have therefore said that Damaris Muthee might have been strangled to death.
"The slain athlete had visited the Ethiopian boyfriend on Saturday and we are suspecting that she was killed the same night because the body is decomposing. The police got reports that the Ethiopian had killed his girlfriend and when the officers came to their residence, they found it locked. They broke the door and found the decomposing body," Maiyo stated.
