Puzzle of 18-year-old man, girlfriend, found murdered inside their house in Nairobi

In Summary

  • Their phones had gone unanswered for several days, prompting a relative to alert the police.
  • They broke through the door to be met with a horrendous scene of double murders.

Directorate of Criminal investigations (DCI) detectives have launched investigations into the gruesome murder of two people in Nairobi.

The victims are an 18-year-old and his girlfriend. Their bodies, found in House no. 11, plot 1450 of the Umoja Zone 8, bore signs of torture.

Police were first alerted that something was amiss when the man’s grandfather unsuccessfully tried to reach him on phone. Calls made by the 18-year-old’s guardian a Seychelles’ national also went unanswered.

“This triggered the grandfather to show up at his kin’s door, only to be met by a foul smell emanating from the inside of a locked door,” says the DCI. “The door had been locked from outside using a padlock.”

The grandfather alerted officers at Buruburu Police Station, who went to the house and broke through the door. “To the shock of all, signs of vehement struggle at the living room and a bloody floor across a corridor leading to the restroom and the bedroom left responders mouth agape.”

Gruesome Discovery

“As police tip-toed across the rooms cautious enough not to disturb the scene, just by the toilet lay the lifeless body of a young woman soaked in blood. Visible were multiple stabs on the shoulder, breasts, lower abdomen, protruding intestines and her hands fastened from behind with a piece of cloth.

“So horrendous was the scene that signified a monstrous attack and a painful death, that even the bravest of the officers hoped to step out immediately and hand over the crime scene to homicide detectives. Just then, a peep at the bedroom sighted a second body of the grandson, sprawled at the floor and the neck tied with an auxiliary cable.”

Theft or Grudge?

“His hands had too been tied with a piece of cloth, had multiple stab wounds on the back and had a deep cut on the neck. Some household items were missing too, including a 43″ TV set, two laptops, a music system and the victims’ mobile phones.”

Crime scene investigators processed the scene and collected evidence that may lead to the arrest of the culprits.
