One of the class representatives eulogised their departed comrade saying they will keep memories of Ivy whom they described as approachable and friendly. Professor Lukoye Atwoli, the School of Medicine Dean of Students, said they will remain in constant touch with the family as it settles for a burial date. “We are mourning the death of Ivy who was bright in class, she would have made a great doctor had her life not been robbed by the assailant,” he said. He added: “She was brutally murdered and we also demand justice.”

They observed that once he will be stable, they will take him to court to answer to the murder charges. The autopsy report revealed that she died due to excess bleeding after sustaining two deep cuts on the left side of the neck and head. “She sustained hypovolemic shock due to excessive bleeding. From our findings, she sustained a deep cut wound on the left side of her neck which severed the main vessels that take blood to the brain and also extended to the bones. There was also a fracture of the left mandible and maxilla,” said Dr. Benson Macharia a pathologist at MTRH. He added: “She also had a deep cut wound on the left side of the head near her ear which also fractured the bone. Her body organs were pale indicating that she lost excess blood.”
