How Choking Smell Led Neighbours to Decomposing Body of Lady Reported Missing in Nakuru a Week Ago

Mary Wanjiku alias ‘Ciku’ was reported missing a week ago before being found dead in her house in Pipeline estate in Nakuru town. According to a police report, the 25-year-old was reported missing before neighbours bumped on her lifeless body.

Speaking to a local media, her neighbour, Elizabeth Wanjiku, said there was a choking smell in the unfinished plot but they mistook it with a burst sewer line. They thought that construction workers had messed up with the sewerage system before the foul smell lead them to the deceased house.

Confirming the incident, Nakuru East Sub-County Police Commander Elena Kabukuru said that a foul smell emanating from the locked house is what led neighbours to the lifeless body.

“The house was locked from inside and the police had to break in, where they found the decomposing body,” Kabukuru said, adding that police broke into the house and discovered the body before depositing it at Nakuru County mortuary.
