Led by Martin Nyuguto, the DCI director in charge of homicide investigations, the detectives landed at Spain area in Kahoya estate, Eldoret, where Odhiambo's parents live.
Here, the homicide experts recovered a number of items that were said to belong to the slain University of Eldoret student. They included clothes, shoes, jewelries among other items.
Handcuffed and dressed in white overalls, Odhiambo, a Nairobi-based photo journalist, was present at the scene to help the Nyuguto and his team of experts gather evidence.
Kahoya estate residents told the Nation that they were shocked to hear that Odhiambo, who is son of a local pastor and chairman of Nyumba Kumi initiative, was the prime suspect in Chiloba's murder.
"We have never witnessed such a thing in our village. We are shocked to see what is happening here," said one resident.
Earlier on the officers had collected blood-stained clothes belonging to Chiloba when they visited Noble Breeze Apartment in Chebisaas, Eldoret, where Odhiambo and the victim allegedly lived as husband and wife.
