RIFT VALLEY | By Stephen Rutto | July 16th 2021
The body of police officer Caroline Kangogo who is believed to have killed a male colleague in Nakuru and a businessman in Juja earlier this month has been moved to Iten County Referral Hospital mortuary.
Kangogo was found dead at her parent's home in Anin village, Elgeyo Marakwet County at 8am this morning.
Her lifeless body was discovered lying in a bathroom at her parents' home.
County Police Commander Patrick Lumumba led a team of regular police officers and detectives in processing the scene.
Lumumba said police were still investigating how the police officer who has been missing since July 5 sneaked into her parents' homestead last night and the circumstances under which she died.
"How she shot herself without relatives hearing the gunshot is still a puzzle," Lumumba said.
Keiyo North Police Commander Tom Makori has earlier told The Standard that Kangogo might have committed suicide.
"The body has a bullet wound and next to her, is a Ceska pistol and a spent cartridge. We are waiting for specialist officers to process the scene," Makori said.
The police boss said Kangogo may have shot herself dead soon after arriving at the home.
Kangogo is suspected to have shot dead constable John Ogweno in Nakuru before allegedly killing Peter Ndwiga in Juja.
Locals who arrived at the home upon receiving the news said the late officer's body was discovered by her mother Leah Kangogo who had gone to the bathroom to bathe at around 8am.
