After 60 days of searching, the missing Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen has been found dead at an underground water storage within his compound.
The homicide team from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) found his body on Friday.
According to DCI boss George Kinoti, the billionaire was brutally murdered and the scene of the murder was at his own house.
“When this matter was reported to us we ordered this place to be reserved as scene of crime, from that time there are things we have been doing to make sure this crime is not covered.
True to our criminal intelligence we discovered the body of the missing Tob Cohen. It was a gruesome murder.He was murdered in his own residence they took their time to kill the innocent Cohen,” said Kinoti.
The DCI boss went ahead to explain how the billionaire was murdered and said: “he was bound, tied hands to the neck before he was murdered and disposed to an underground water tank.”
He further revealed that the deceased had serious injuries on his neck.
According to the DC boss, the house had no CCTV cameras at the time of the murder adding that the secret cameras were mounted after the incident.
The DCI said the motive of the murder is very clear and could not go further in giving details of it.
A friend to Cohen, Peter Muiruri, who spoke during KTN’s live coverage said that Cohen had serious concerns about his life and that their conversation on that fateful day had all hallmarks of what happened to him.
“He has been my friend close to 30 years, we have been very close. on the night he was murdered we talked from 9.45 p.m to after 10 p.m.
He was very very concerned abut his life and he told me that day if anything happens to him, if was to be found dead anywhere his wife Sarah will be the one responsible.”
On August 27, police arrested his wife Sarah Wairimu who was held as prime suspect in connection to the disappearance of the tycoon.
“She is the prime suspect and that is why she was arrested,” said Kinoti.
On Thursday, the prosecution pressed murder charges against Sarah but the accused could not take plea as the court directed that she undergo a mental assessment before answering to the charges.
Kinoti revealed that two suspects were arrested over the matter and many more others will be arrested in connection to the incident.
