Woman, son murdered in cold blood as they prayed
Detectives are investigating the killing of three people at a house along Jogoo Road in Nairobi County.
The three who include a middle aged woman, her eight year old son and a 35 year old man were killed in cold blood by an unknown person at a house located in the government quarters.
Police say that both mother and son were holding rosaries indicating that they may have prayed for their lives to be spared.
The third body of the man believed to be the woman’s friend was found in the toilet with his hands and legs tied together using electric cables.
“The house was in a mess with clothes, shoes and bedding strewn all over the floor, indicating that a struggle must have ensued, before the victims met their painful deaths. Neighbours told investigators that they had last seen the victims enter the house on Sunday, after attending a Church service,” said the DCI.
“Whilst we are yet to make arrests or establish the motive of the killings, Scenes of Crime Investigators processed the scene and preserved it for further analysis by Homicide experts, who will undoubtedly resolve the murder and arrest the killers,” DCI further stated.
Meanwhile, bodies of the victims were moved to Chiromo Funeral home awaiting autopsy.
