Oduor conducted the postmortem in the company of four other pathologists and senior homicide detectives at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) mortuary.

“He died because of burns, which were mixed degree burns estimated at 60 per cent. In burns, what kills are the complications that arise. In this case there was sepsis, multiple organ failure and all that” he said

According to a local daily, Matete was questioned for about six hours after homicide detectives collected samples from her house, where the gas explosion that left her late husband with severe burns happened.
