DCI dispatches homicide detectives to probe killer cop Caroline Kangogo's death
The body of the late Caroline Kangogo is moved to the Iten County Refferal Hospital in Elgeyo Marakwet on July 16, 2021.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation’s (DCI) homicide unit have been dispatched to Elgeyo Marakwet to unravel the mystery death of fugitive policewoman Caroline Kangogo.

The death of Kangogo brought to an end a 10-day search for the 34-year-old policewoman accused of double homicide.

While police said she committed suicide, many have cast doubts on the theory presented by the police.

Kangogo was found lifeless in a pool of blood at her parents’ home in Nyawa, in Elgeyo Marakwet County with a Ceska pistol in her right hand.

Detectives are also studying a lengthy SMS Kangogo is believed to have written in the wee hours of Friday morning before reportedly taking her own life.

In the message seen by Citizen TV, Kangogo blames her actions on her failed marriage that drove a wedge between her and her family, saying: “depression is real please… assist those you know my divorce pushed me to be inhuman, my father disowned me due to my failed marriage.”

She claims that her ex-husband called her family and gave one side of the story to cover up for his mistakes.

In the text, she also claims to have gone to Mombasa where the former husband, a police officer works and saw him being picked and dropped from work but spared his life due to compassion for her two children.

Though she did not give a reason for killing police constable John Ogweno, she refers to him as the love of her life.

As for the murder of Peter Ndwiga, the man seen with her on CCTV at a Kimbo hotel, she had no apologies to make.

She wrote… “I don’t owe anyone an apology. He conned me Ksh.1.5 million shillings whereby Ksh.300,000 I borrowed from my father’s retirement benefits…then he arrogantly tells me he isn’t paying, and I even found him with a new Probox,”

She also claimed to have suffered at the hands of a Senior Nakuru Police officer who she accuses of harassment.

Caroline Kangogo was last seen on the July 5 making her way out of Dedamax hotel after she reportedly shot and killed Peter Ndwiga.
