After a three-hour-long postmortem carried out by two pathologists and a forensic physician, the autopsy report of athlete Agnes Tirop has now been released. The exercise took place on Tuesday, October 19 at Iten County Referral Hospital.
Speaking to the press, Dr Dorothy Njeru, who led the exercise, said the cause of Tirop's death was mainly due to stab wounds on the neck and blunt force trauma on the head. She added that the prepared report was handed over to DCI.
The family of the deceased and Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers were present during the exercise. After the exercise, the body was released for collection by parents for burial on Saturday in Nandi County.
Her boyfriend, Ibrahim Rotich, who is the main suspect in the murder of the athlete, has been detained for 20 days for investigations into her death to be finalised. Senior principal magistrate Charles Kutwa ordered a mental assessment be done on him before he is allowed to take a plea.
