The family claims that they retrieved the body of the girl from the borehole when she was already dead. The suspect on seeing that neighbours were suspecting him since he was last seen with Melissa, he went ahead to the police station to clear his name.
Ms Kithure told the media that her daughter was missing for almost one week and when she was found, the suspect reported to police that the family was about to place charges against him but the police send him away saying that no complainant had reported the incident.
A postmortem conducted shows the Minor was defiled before being killed by strangulation. Another report shows there was hymenal perfection which tears in her bladder and pelvis indicating that she was bleeding from her private parts. The doctor also revealed that Melissa's brain had oedema due to strangulation.
The mother claims that they are crying for help since the officers have not showed any signs of investigating the incident. The family claims that the suspect lured Melissa when she was playing with her fellow children.
