Detectives are investigating a macabre murder of a middle-aged woman, her 8-year-old son and a 35-year-old man, said to be a boyfriend to the deceased woman.

The bodies of the three were discovered in the woman’s house on Tuesday. The house is located in the government quarters along Jogoo Road.

According to the DCI, both mother and son had blood oozing from their mouths and were holding rosaries indicating that they may have prayed for their lives to be spared. Their bodies were found on the floor of their bedroom next to each other while the body of the male adult, was found in the toilet with his hands and legs tied together using electric cables.

The bodies of the mother and child were reportedly partially decomposed but the man’s body was intact.

The house was reportedly in a mess with clothes, shoes and bedding strewn all over the floor, indicating that a struggle must have ensued before the victims met their painful deaths even though Neighbours, who reported having the victims enter the house on Sunday, said they never heard any commotion.

Bodies of the victims were moved to Chiromo mortuary awaiting autopsies.

The woman has since been identified as Charity Cherop Cheboi, an employee of the Registrar of Persons based at Mathare Huduma Centre. The murdered boyfriend, Kelvin Kipkoech, has also been identified as a senior seminarian waiting to graduate as a Catholic priest.

The bodies were discovered after the child’s school administration called his father who does not live with them to find out why the boy did not report to school on Monday and Tuesday.

The father, on failing to reach his son’s mother on phone, went to the house but no one opened it, prompting him to find ways of breaking into the house, located on the third floor.

Cases of murder have been on the rise in the country. The latest incident comes just days after 38-year-old Caroline Wanjiku Maina, was Kidnapped and killed by suspects known to her. The four suspects have since been arrested.
