Female Medical Worker Found Murdered In Herr Rented Home In Homa Bay

Police in Homa Bay County are looking into the death of a 28-year-old woman whose body was discovered in her leased home, lying in a pool of blood.

The body of Mary Kwamboka Ogechi was reportedly found by her friend and neighbour on Sunday at 11 a.m., according to the police.

In the Homa Bay Town constituency's Rodi Kopany town centre, Ms. Ogechi worked in a private medical facility.

When the neighbour went to see her friend and found the door shut from the outside, she grew suspicious, the neighbour informed the police.

The neighbour raised the alarm when she noticed her friend's lifeless body lying in a pool of blood and peered through the window, according to the police.

The dead may have been fatally stabbed the night before by her lover, according to Homa Bay County Directorate of Criminal Investigation Officer (DCIO) Abed Kavoo.

While noting that the boyfriend has fled and cannot be located, he stated, "Our officers are looking into the event, but we assume the murder may have been carried out by him."

"The woman had significant cuts on her neck and face, suggesting she had been attacked with a kitchen knife before the attacker locked the door from outside and vanished," the report continues.

At the scene, police found a kitchen knife that was bloodied.

As they pursue their inquiries, the police are making every attempt to find the suspect.

The deceased's body was brought to the morgue at Homa Bay County Hospital in the meantime.
