The police have launched a hunt for the lover of international athletics star Agnes Jebet Tirop whose lifeless body was discovered in her house in Iten yesterday.
The lifeless body of Tirop, who represented Kenya at the Tokyo Olympics in August, was found in her bedroom with a deep stab wound on the neck, according to the police. It is believed she was killed.
Among athletes who visited the home where the late Tirop lived with her boyfriend Ibrahim Kipchumba Rotich, was former world champion Janeth Jepkosgei, who is popularly known as (Eldoret Express) as well as a host of her training partners.
Neigbours and relatives say they were living together.
On her social media, Tirop posted mainly about her passion, running. Most of her photos are either of her on the track training, on on the finish line winning a race.
One of her quotes was, "Faith it until you find it..."
In another post, she wrote, "God has His time, thank you Lord and lots of thanks to my management and adidas for the support... And to all my fans tomorrow is promising."
On June 3, she shared a photo of her in a race with the caption, "Victory face...Thank you."
Here are some photos of her during happier times.
