Senior DCI Commander Found Dead, Panic as Fully Loaded Pistol Missing From Crime Scene

The death of a senior Sergeant attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) in Parklands, Nairobi has sent detectives searching for answers. The body of the deceased was discovered at his home with a piece of clothing suspected to have been used during his death.

According to The Star digital news platform, Senior Sergeant Elias Kirimo was the head the DCI unit at Parklands police station where he was last seen a day before. Sources close to the case say that as a senior officer, he is allowed by National Police protocols to have a government issued weapon which incidentally was yet to be traced.

Preliminary investigations indicate that it is a suspected suicide after his two sons allegedly found him hanging from a metal frame. A piece of clothing was around his neck and the room was unlocked at the time he was discovered dead. His body was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital mortuary for preservation as Investigations continue.
