RIP: Autopsy Reveals Murdered Gay Activist, Chiloba's Pants Was Removed & Why It Was Found In Mouth

An autopsy on Edwin Chiloba's remains determined that he died of asphyxiation. The government pathologist Johansen Oduor confirmed to the media that the activist's body showed no signs of physical trauma.

Death by asphyxiation was confirmed; toxicology tests will reveal whether or not Chiloba was drugged before his death.

During the postmortem, Dr. Oduor stated that they found three socks jammed into the deceased's mouth, suffocating him, and a pair of denim pants covering his mouth and nose.

But he has denied that Chiloba's eyes were removed by force, arguing that the body was not dismembered and that the first people to see him may have misinterpreted the sunken eyes as a result of decomposition.

Elsewhere, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has been permitted by a court in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County, to detain Jackton Odhiambo, the primary suspect in Chiloba's murder, for another 21 days.
