Administration Police officer killed, body dumped in latrines

By Fred Kibor | Sep 21st 2014 | 1 min read

The dismembered body of an Administration Police officer was yesterday found dumped in three pit latrines at Kapkesum village in Keiyo North Sub County.

The eyes of the officer attached to Chesoi post in Marakwet East Sub County had been gouged and stashed in a polythene paper, which together with other gunny bags carrying the rest of the parts of the body, were dumped in different pit latrines. Residents were shocked as they combed various latrines in search of missing body parts.

Elizabeth Kimutai, a resident, was shocked to find polythene bags damped in a pit latrine. As she tried to pull out the bags with the help of other villagers, they found a chopped human hand and clothing stashed inside.

“We alerted the chief, who informed police officers and a search to find the rest of the body parts was mounted,” said Ms Kimutai.

The other body parts were discovered in two separate pit latrines. “We have never experienced such a scenario,” said Boniface Korat, another villager. Local security officers, led by Assistant commissioner John Chirchir, said nobody had been arrested in connection with the murder.

“We suspect the murder could have been as a result of love triangle or deal gone sour,” said Korat. Chirchir said they are pursuing the case and urged the public to volunteer any information that might lead to the arrest of the killers.

The body is at Iten Referral Hospital mortuary.
