Local police said that caretakers of the apartment complex in which Ms Mary Anne Wangui lived were shocked when they went into her house for routine maintenance only to find her unconscious.
They immediately called the medical personnel but she never made it to the hospital.
Leah Wanja, a sister to the deceased, told the Nation that the family was in shock following the incident.
“She was in high spirits on Tuesday. Nobody would have suspected any illness,” she said.
Wangui’s husband, Mr Billy Williams, was too overcome by emotions to talk to the media.
On Wednesday, the body of the deceased was taken to the County coroner’s office for autopsy.
A spokesperson from the Harris County Coroner’s office told the Nation by phone that pathologists were performing a postmortem to establish the cause of death.
“We should be able to have a report by Friday afternoon,” he said.
The incident comes only a day after a Kenyan couple in Roswell, Georgia, was admitted to hospital in critical condition following a domestic fight.
Local police have said that they suspect a case of attempted murder-suicide in which the woman, Emily Griggs, was stabbed severally while the husband, Obadiah Makambi Mokua, was found writhing in pain after ingesting poison.
By Thursday evening, Ms Griggs had left the ICU at North Fulton Hospital while Mr Mokua was still under tight police security at the same hospital. Their three children had been taken by the authorities to a kids’ shelter.-nation
