Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Mohamed Amin on Tuesday, March 28, joined the investigations team during the reconstruction of the scene of Jeff Mwathi's tragic death at an apartment located in Kasarani, Nairobi.
In a statement, Amin examined the compound where Mwathi allegedly fell to his death and also explored possible angles from which the deceased likely fell from the apartment.
The investigation team also proceeded inside DJ Fatxo's apartment in a bid to piece together the final moments of the interior designer.
"In the reconstruction, the DCI Headquarters homicide team and crime scene personnel from the DCI National Forensic Laboratory sought to identify gaps that the exhumation is expected to provide answers once DNA and Toxicology analyses are concluded," the statement read in part.
DCI revealed that the investigations would pave way for the exhumation of Mwathi's body on Friday, March 31, 2023.
Further, Amin noted that no stone would be left unturned during the analysis phase.
"As he (Amin) encourages the investigating team to resolve the case expeditiously and see to it that the rule of law carries the day. The DCI assures the family and members of the public that ultimately, nothing but justice will be served," the DCI stated.
Recent reports revealed that Mwathi's probe created two opposing camps at Kasarani Police Station where some officers sought the investigations to be ruled as suicide while others sought the green light for the probe.
A source, who spoke to the media, noted that the videos shared online were doctored to create the impression that the interior designer jumped out of his own volition.
"If you keenly watched the original version of the CCTV footage and not the others that were doctored and shared online, the deceased was pushed out of a tiny window from the tenth floor. He fell face-down with his hands outstretched toward the ground."
“Two things here, the deceased was intoxicated. Secondly, the people who did it (did not know what to do after the crime). It was not a suicide but what we don’t know for now is the motive,’’ the source stated.
