Another Kenyan Female Athlete Found Murdered in Cold Blood by Fellow Athlete

Another Kenyan female athlete has been found murdered in a house in Iten town, just a few months after the brutal murder of Agnes Tirop, the long-distance runner heroine.

The 24-year-old Damaris Muthee Mutua was found murdered in the house of the suspected killer, who is said to have fled the country after he allegedly committed the shocking murder.

Media reports have revealed that Damaris was another promising athlete from Iten who had a bigger potential of representing the country on international levels, only for her life to be cut short by a fellow athlete.

She was allegedly murdered by an Ethiopian athlete identified as Koki Fai who reportedly fled from the country after the incident

The Star reports that Koki Fai is also a Kenyan but for his own reasons, decided to represent Ethiopia in international athletic events.

He is said to have committed the murder inside his rented house before fleeing the country, leaving the deceased's body inside the house.

After he had crossed the border, he is said to have made a phone call to other athletes in Iten town, informing them that he had ended the life of Damaris.

Police officers have sealed off the scene and are currently investigating the circumstances around the killing.

The death of Damaris is happening less than a year since Agnes Tirop. She was allegedly murdered by her alleged husband. The case of her case is still on.

May their souls rest in eternal peace.
