In Summary

  • An autopsy conducted on the body of the deceased – Leah Oloo - showed that the cause of death was as a result of suffocation by strangulation.
  • The external exam also revealed that Leah had no head injuries but had a bruise located on the neck; a groove was seen on the lower neck.

Kennedy Oloo, a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer at the Lanet Barracks in Nakuru was on Tuesday arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife.

An autopsy conducted on the body of the deceased – Leah Oloo – showed that the cause of death was as a result of suffocation by strangulation.

The external exam also revealed that Leah had no head injuries but had a bruise located on the neck; a groove was seen on the lower neck.

An initial report by the husband alleging suicide was however dismissed when the postmortem showed otherwise; that someone was involved using a string or wire.

Nakuru County Criminal Investigation Officer Michael Mwenze confirmed that the suspect is being held in custody at the Bahati North Police Station.

Before she died, Leah had reportedly indicated to her friends and family that she was leaving the three-year marriage.

The family now claims she had made frantic calls after the husband locked her up in the house on the day she was to leave; she reportedly even made a recording and sent it to her sister.

With the damning revelations surrounding the death of the 26-year-old now in the open, the family is seeking justice for their kin as burial plans commence.
