A new team of detectives has taken over the probe into the murder of a 24-year old waitress in Kiamumbi area, Kahawa West.
The team from Homicide Unit at the Department of Criminal Investigation (DCI), say they believe the deceased, Velvine Nungari was sexually assaulted by more than one assailant.
According to a Police source, the team plans to talk to more people of interest who they have so far mapped out.
“ The motive of the murder is yet to be established. The prime suspect in the incident Joseph Murimi told Police he left a hotel he was last seen with the deceased woman an hour after he had checked in but other workers there said they saw him leave in the morning.
“ The woman died while undergoing treatment at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital on March 9. An autopsy report on her body showed she suffered three fractures on her spinal cord with bruises and fluid deposits consistent with sexual assault, ” the source stated.
Fresh details have emerged on the last moments of the 24-year-old woman who later died after being assaulted by a man who left her in a city hotel.
What started as a night-out for Velvine Nungari ended in tragedy after she was found in a sorry state in a hotel room and rushed to hospital where she later died.
CCTV footage from the hotel where Velvine, spent the night of February 23 has now helped the DCI to unmask the identity of the man believed to have been behind her attack.
Velvine succumbed to the injuries on March 9 at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital where she was receiving treatment. She was buried at her rural home in Sabasaba, Murang’a County, on Wednesday.
Recall that Security Watch Africa had reported that the Police have been granted 10 more days to hold the key suspect as investigations and the hunt for more suspects continue.
