Agnes Tirop's Autopsy Reveals New Details.

Post-mortem results for slain athlete Agnes Tirop were conducted at the Iten County Referral Hospital (ICRH) mortuary on Tuesday, October 19, revealing more details surrounding her death.

The autopsy has revealed that Tirop died as a result of injuries caused by stab wounds on the neck. In addition, she was hit on the head with a blunt object.

The three-hour-long post-mortem was carried out by two pathologists and a forensic physician at the ICRH in the presence of a family pathologist.

While speaking to journalists, pathologist Dr Dorothy Njeru stated they had prepared a report and handed it over to homicide detectives at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

“Generally, the examination has shown injuries due to blunt post-trauma," Njeru stated.

Following the autopsy, the body was moved to Eldoret Hospital mortuary ahead of burial in Kapnyamisa village, Nandi County.

“My sister's burial will be on Saturday. We are moving the body to Eldoret to ease our preparations for burial,” Limo, the late athlete’s elder brother stated.
