Bodies of two minors dumped by roadside in Busia

Busia, Kenya: Police are investigating an incident in which two bodies were discovered by residents in Ojamii area of Angorom location, Busia County.

Locals raised alarm Tuesday morning after finding bodies of boys aged four and three and a half years respectively dumped by the roadside.

Busia County Commander Halima Abdi said police suspect the minors could have been murdered elsewhere and the bodies dumped in Angorom.

She added that locals were unable to identify the bodies, an indication that the deceased were dumped in the area to throw police off in their investigations.

''The two bodies had no visible injuries, but we suspect that the two were killed elsewhere and their bodies later dumped here. We are yet to nab the suspects and establish the motive of the crime,'' Halima said.

The commander, however, appealed to area residents to volunteer any information that would help investigations.

The bodies were moved to Busia County Referral hospital for preservation awaiting post mortem.
