The 18-year-old’s guardian from Seychelles who’s been paying their rent and occasionally stayed with them at Hse no. 11 plot 1450 of the Umoja Zone 8 houses had also attempted calls that were not answered.
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. The door had been locked from outside using a padlock. Amid despondency and prayer that the worst had not happened to his grandson, the grandfather alerted Buruburu police,118 who arrived immediately and gained entry.
To the shock of all, signs of vehement struggle at the living room and a bloody floor across a corridorleading to the restroom and the bedroom left responders mouth agape. 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.
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.
