Yesterday Kenyans across the country were treated to a rude shock after a man believed to be a medical doctor killed his two children and later attempting suicide.
In a previous media report, the man a doctor had injected his two kids with insulin killing them on the spot.
However, an autopsy report has been released after a post-mortem was conducted on the two kids' bodies.
“We have engaged a pathologist for purposes of identifying the cause of the death. We haven’t been able to pinpoint the actual cause. Samples have been collected from the two bodies for toxicology investigations."
“There were no physical injuries on the bodies of the two children. It is not yet clear how the doctor administered the chemicals. We shall have the process expedited so as to assist the family, which has been greatly shocked by the incident,” the detective stated.
His statement contradicted that of police boss Beatrice Kiraguri who stated that inside the bedroom the said doctor had placed a very sharp knife that would have ended the two kids' life if the injection failed to work.
However, Mr. Ambani said blood samples from the kids' bodies would be collected and compared with those found at the crime scene for a conclusive statement.
Varied reports indicate that the man might have fallen out with his wife after she planned to visit and live abroad.
Other reports alleged that the case was aligned with a DNA report on the two kids secretly conducted by the doctor. However, the doctor’s acquaintances refuted the reports.
Nakuru police boss Beatrice however said the case was being treated with uttermost care as the mother was seriously ailing after receiving the shocking news.
She further added that the doctor who is believed to have committed these heinous acts was in the ICU.
“He remained unconscious until yesterday morning (Sunday, September 19). He confessed to us having administered the drugs to the children. Their bodies were taken to Nakuru Level Five Hospital mortuary,” Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri detailed.
