Family seeks CCTV images to establish cause of death of daughter

The family of a 21-year-old banker found dead inside her house in Race Course Estate, Nakuru County, wants images from a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) reviewed to solve her mysterious death.

Lawyer Gordon Ogola, who appeared before Principal Magistrate Bernard Mararo, urged the State to provide the CCTV for CFC Stanbic Bank Nakuru branch where Jacinta Achieng worked.

“The CCTV footage will establish the movements of Achieng among other actions that may be linked to her demise,” he said.

Investigators appear to have hit a dead-end in the case.

Achieng was found dead in her house, which was locked from the inside. Police said there were no signs of breakage.

Her body was found lying in a pool of blood on the floor. It was close to the bed and was covered with bedsheets.

There was a smell of paraffin hanging over the house and a carpet placed near the door was partly burnt.
