A man has been found dead in a car parked at a petrol station in Kisumu.
Habel Oile, 33, reportedly parked at the petrol station along the Kisumu-Kisian road on Wednesday. His prolonged stay inside the car triggered the curiosity of night guards at the petrol station.
The guards, Kisumu County police commander Samuel Anampiu said, knocked on the window of driver’s door. But there was no response. The man had reportedly reclined the driver’s seat and appeared to be asleep.
Police who arrived at the scene broke into the car and realised that the man was dead. The Commander said a 25mm bottle of insecticide was found next to the body. Police are treating the death as suicide.
