Body discovered in a briefcase

Detectives in Juja are investigating the murder of a young woman and the consequent dumping of her body outside the GSU Recce Camp in Ruiru, Kiambu County.

The body had been stashed in a gunny bag and fitted into a black suitcase.

The body was discovered along the camps perimeter wall by curious members of the public who alerted the police.

Juja Sub-County Police Commander Dorothy Migarusha said the woman appeared to have been killed elsewhere and her body dumped at the scene.

“The woman, aged between 18 and early 20s was strangled. Her hands had been tied from behind and a nylon rope to her neck that may have been used in her strangulation”, said the police boss.

She also had a visible deep cut on the left breast and had ink writings on the chest, both palms and both thighs with the message that read “Bwana ya mtu sumu” (Another person’s husband is poison.)

The message had been written using a blue permanent marker pen.

The body has been moved to Nairobi City Mortuary as investigations continue.
