Caroline Kangogo's coffin.
The body of police constable Caroline Kangogo arrived at her parents' Nyawa village home in Elgeyo Marakwet county on Thursday for burial. The body was fitted with a wedding dress as per Kangogo's request in a draft text message found after her death. Her father Barnabas and mother Leah Kangogo led mourners in collecting the body from Iten County Refferal Hospital morgue. Officers from Nakuru where Kangogo served were present at the burial, as well as hundreds of residents. Kangogo's former husband Ngeno and family members from Bomet also attended the burial.
The body was ferried in a hearse and police were not involved in transporting it to the home. Kangogo's brother Mark said the family will give Caroline a decent burial. Chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor carried out a postmortem on Tuesday, which revealed Kangogo died from a single gunshot wound to the head that damaged her brain and skull. The examination was conducted at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret. Oduor said the bullet entered the body through the right chin and exited on the left side of the head and there was a trajectory going through the spine to the brain. However, he said further investigations would be done to establish if she shot herself or she was shot by someone else.
