    On Thursday, September 12, 2019, the court ordered that his wife, Sarah Wairimu undergoes a mental evaluation to determine whether she is fit to stand a murder trial. 

    Wairimu was arrested on suspicion that she was involved in his disappearance and the plot to have him killed. 

    This was after preliminary investigations by police alleged that she had coached witnesses to give false information pertaining to the movements of Cohen on the day of his disappearance.

    It was reported that the employees at the Dutchman’s home allegedly told the police that on the afternoon of July 20, he was picked up and driven off in a white car while carrying only a briefcase.

    The police had expressed fears that if she was released from custody, she would interfere with evidence or even intimidate witnesses from testifying.
