Kericho County Criminal Investigation Officer John Onyango said preliminary investigations showed the suspect abducted the minor on her way home from school and took her to his house. After molesting the girl in his house, the suspect strangled and stabbed the girl in the chest before dumping her body into Chaimen River. Said John.
Mr Onyango added that After the body of the minor was found floating it the river and without the undergarments, they deployed intelligence officers to investigate and resolve the murder. A tip-off from members of the public led to the arrest of the suspect.
The CCIO said a blood-stained kitchen knife believed to be the murder weapon, was recovered from the suspect's house.Rolls of bhang were also recovered, with investigators suspecting the man is a clandestine drug peddler.The suspect also led the officers to a pit latrine, where he had dumped the girl’s blood-stained underparts and pair of shoes.
The Kericho CCIO commended the public for their cooperation that led to the arrest of the man, who worked at a local tea farm. They are preparing to arraign the suspect and hope that they will manage to lay bare the motive behind the murder.
