  • Autopsy results of three people who were found dead in Jogoo Road Government Quarters, Nairobi County, were released on Friday, February 26.

    Speaking to the media, government pathologist Johansen Oduor stated that Charity Cheboi and her eight-year-old son died from suffocation on adding that their noses and mouth had been covered.

    Kelvin Koech, a senior seminarian whose body was found in a bathroom, died from carbon monoxide emanating from a jiko found next to him.

    Detectives suspect that the Koech could have either murdered the duo before he took his own life or the mother and son were killed by someone trying to get some information from him.

    "We are yet to establish if Koech's injuries were self inflicted or were inflicted by someone who was trying to get information from him," Oduor stated.

    Preliminary results showed that Koech's hands and legs had been tied with electric cables and his body did not have any visible injuries.

    "It is difficult to establish if Koech tied the ropes himself or they were tied by someone else. However, they look loose so it could be either," the pathologist added.

    Earlier reports indicated that Cheboi and her son were each holding a rosary.  She had bruises on her face while her son had blood oozing from the mouth.

    “Both the woman and her 8-year old son had vomited on the bed. They lay side by side,” the detectives stated.

    Koech's parents indicated that he was expected to be a Catholic Priest soon because he had just completed exams.

    They added that their son was studying at St Thomas of Aquinas Seminary School in Nairobi and was in his eighth year due to graduate as a Catholic priest this year.
