The Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti is on the receiving end of massive praises from a section of social media users after he lead his team in finding the missing Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen, though dead.
After 60 days of searching, the missing Dutch billionaire was on Friday found dead at an underground water storage within his compound.
According to DCI boss George Kinoti, the billionaire was brutally murdered and the scene of the murder was at his own house.
“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.
He was bound, tied hands to the neck before he was murdered and disposed to an underground water tank,” said an emotional Kinoti.
The DCI said two suspects had been arrested over the disappearance of the tycoon on July 19 adding that more people could have been involved in the execution.
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 29, 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.
Following the revelations Kenyans on Twitter lauded the DCI boss for the splendid work.

Imagine if DCI still had Ndegwa Muhoro in charge. Kinoti is doing well so far. Now placing the killers in the crime scene, looking for the murder weapon and a conviction is all next.
