JOSEPH NYAKUNDI AUTOPSY
An autopsy report conducted on the body of Joseph Nyakundi – city lawyer Assa Nyakundi’s son – has now revealed that the deceased could have been shot from outside the vehicle and not inside as first reported.
This contradicts Mr. Nyakundi’s earlier claim that he was trying to holster his firearm while in the car when he accidentally fired, shooting his second-born son Nyakundi, 29, in the chest.
“The shot projection from the chest exiting at the back suggested that whoever shot him was standing outside the rear right back door of motor vehicle KCE 753B Toyota Axio which belongs to the father of deceased,” reads the report in part.
The experts said also suggested that there was a confrontation leading up to the fatal shooting.
