Twist On Athlete Murdered In Iten As Police Trace Last Phone Call Of Boyfriend

The mysterious death of Kenyan athlete Damaris Muthee who was found murdered in Iten has taken a fresh twist after detectives probing the case found a new lead that could help arrest the main suspect.

According to the Homicide detectives, his Ethiopian boyfriend was being treated as the main suspect in the murder since he fled the same day Damaris was found murdered.

However, according to Keiyo North Deputy County commissioner Julius Maiyo who was speaking to the media, sleuths have traced the last call of the main suspect Koki Fai to Ethiopia.

Further details indicate that there were no visible injuries on the decomposing body of the athlete and it is believed she could have died as a result of strangulation.

The two lovebirds are reported not to have been on good terms with Fai luring Damaris to the death trap and close friends to the deceased regretting that she was murdered at a time she had hit her peak.
