Homicide detectives have taken over investigations into the death of the Athi River minors whose bodies were found in a car parked at a police station.
The new team from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) will unravel the death mystery of Alvina Mutheu 3, and Henry Jacktone, 4.
The bodies of the two minors were recovered on Wednesday from a vehicle at the Athi River Police Station.
Yesterday, the new investigations team recorded fresh statements from the family of the two minors.
The team has set next Tuesday as the tentative date for the postmortem examination.
- 1 Cop in student killing case held for a week
- 2 The old wounds DCI is opening are still painful

The new date will however be firmed up after the DCI consults with Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Odour who is currently engaged in other matters in Marsabit County.
The owner of the vehicle in which the minors were found is among the people lined up to record statements next week.
Also lined up for questioning are senior and junior officers at the police station. The officers include those on duty since June 11 when a report of the missing minors was reported.
A traffic officer assigned to move vehicles at the police station yard on May 1 is also set to record a statement.
