Upon arriving at his house, Chesang' was astonished at his son's condition. He quickly notified the police at Eldama Ravine station. The detectives were quick to conduct a swift investigation and nabbed the suspect before he could escape the village.

The suspect claimed that he had gone to demand for his overdue money when he found Clement not in his house. It was then that he was tempted to terminate the life of his son.
