“We are still looking for him but since Monday we have not made much progress. My officers are still on the ground but we doubt whether he can commit such a crime and still be found alive,” Mr Ndegwa stated.
The deceased was discovered lying in a pool of blood outside their matrimonial home by rescuers who answered a distress call. While a post-mortem will be conducted today, showed the deceased suffered about 12 stab wounds on her body.
The suspect reportedly took off immediately after the gruesome discovery, with incestigators saying his phone’s last signal was traced to Kagumo, Kirinyaga County, on Monday evening.
Mathira West sub-county Police Commander Michael Ndegwa said on Wednesday the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) had taken over the suspected homicide case but they were yet to make any arrests, further expressing doubts that the suspect was alive.
Ms. Nyaguthii will be buried on Friday (tomorrow). Her heinous murder story shocked the nation especially after she lost her life to a man and a domestic violence victim she once attended to and nursed back to health in hospital before the two married.
Mr. Muriithi was her patient who had fallen victim to domestic violence at the hands of his first wife over 20 years ago.
