Peninah Wairimu Ngugi, Pauline Njeri : “Three Family Members Found Murdered and Mutilated in Thika Village”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Police in Thika, a town in Kiambu County, are currently investigating a gruesome murder incident that has shocked the community. The bodies of three family members, including an elderly woman, her daughter, and their house help, were discovered mutilated and dumped near their home village of Maguguni in Ngoliba Ward, Thika East Constituency.

The discovery was made by witnesses who found two of the bodies inside their newly built house, while the third, which had been beheaded, was buried in a shallow grave a few meters away. The bodies were in an advanced state of decomposition, indicating that the murders likely took place a few days prior. Police officers at the scene recovered two bloodstained knives, believed to have been the murder weapons.

Neighbors of the victims revealed that the family had been missing since the previous Saturday. Kahoro Mbogo, a neighbor, stated that the family members would regularly collect milk from his farm but had not done so since Saturday, raising suspicions that they may have been murdered around that time.

Thika East police boss, Andrew Sora, confirmed the incident and assured the public that the police are diligently pursuing leads to apprehend the suspects responsible for this brutal crime. “We have begun our investigations and are optimistic that we will have the suspects arrested for prosecution. It’s very unfortunate,” stated Sora.

Villagers expressed shock and disbelief over the tragedy, describing the family as peaceful and relatively new to the village, having settled there just three years ago. The community is now grappling with the shock and horror of such a heinous crime being committed in their midst.

The bodies have been transferred to Thika’s General Kago mortuary, where further examinations will be conducted to gather more evidence and determine the exact cause of death.

The investigation into this triple murder is ongoing, and the police are urging anyone with information related to the incident to come forward. The community is also being urged to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the authorities.

As the community mourns this tragic loss, they are hopeful that justice will be served, and the perpetrators of this gruesome crime will be brought to book.
