Police Recover Severed Human Head Suspected To Be Of Slain Nairobi Woman

In a chilling turn of events, police have retrieved a woman’s head, wrapped in a purple blouse and concealed within a black paper bag at a dam in Kiambaa, Kiambu County in Kenya.

The shocking discovery, which occurred on Sunday, January 21, followed a tip-off from vigilant members of the public.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) forensic experts were promptly engaged to assess the situation and collect crucial evidence. Other than the head, authorities also recovered various items, including a mobile phone.

Security officers noted a stone within the bag, suggesting a deliberate effort to submerge it. This they said pointed towards a sinister intent by the perpetrator.

“We have a human head believed to be that of the slain woman but we will say more after probe,” another officer disclosed to the media.

Rita’s family, in a statement, revealed that her abductors had demanded a ransom of Sh500,000 for her release.

Dr. Johansen Oduor, the Chief Government Pathologist, expressed shock over the gruesome killing. He highlighted the unprecedented nature of the case in his forensic career.

Oduor also disclosed that the perpetrator had attempted to remove Rita’s fingernails, suggesting an effort to conceal potential DNA evidence.

He stated, “The killer tried to extract her fingernails for reasons which I may not be able to know. As a scientist when we see this, we think that the person was trying to hide evidence so that we are unable to get his DNA from his victim.”
