A Taxi driver is once again on the spot after a businesswoman he reportedly transported to her house was found dead with Sh300,000 lying beside her.
Residents of Kiamaina said the businesswoman, Mary Muturi, had last been seen three days before her body was discovered in her compound.
The locals said they saw the woman being dropped at her home by a taxi driver.
Wednesday, unsettled residents decide to storm the woman’s home after her calls went unanswered for three days.
“Her mobile phones went unanswered before going off. We were concerned so we decided to come to her house and establish what the problem was,” stated Lydia Wangechi, a friend.
When they broke into her home with the help of the area Assistant Chief, everything was intact.
They would only later break into another house inside the home, where they found the businesswoman’s body lying on the bed with visible injuries on the head and neck.
“We later decided to check another house located within the compound. It was also locked. After breaking in, we found the body in the bed,” narrated the area Assistant Chief Mr Stephen Maingi.
Nyahururu Sub County Police boss Mr Geoffrey Maiyek said police had launched investigations into the incident but were yet to discover the intention of the suspects.
A sum of Sh300,000 was also discovered next to the businesswoman’s lifeless body during the break-in.
