Mysterious Deaths:Mutilated body found,family still looking for missing children
Police on Monday found the mutilated body of a girl, believed to be that of Tiffany, burnt with sulfuric acid and dumped in a Ruiru coffee farm.
Zipporah Mboroki, police spokesperson, told the Star on phone that the body, clothed in grey pajamas, is of a girl aged between seven and eight years. She said the girl’s hair was in cornrows.
Mboroki said the girl’s body has been moved to the mortuary while the family of the missing child has been asked to go to the morgue to identify the body since the police are not sure if she’s their missing daughter.
Family spokesperson, Andrew Mahiu, when contacted by the Star, said the family was at Thika Level Five hospital to check whether the girl was their missing child, Tiffany.
“We have found the body,” Mahiu said later after identifying the body.
The three children of Nairobi lawyers Paul Magu and his wife Lydia Wambui, went missing last week. Magu and Wambui were found dead on Wednesday, under mysterious circumstances.
The lawyer is suspected of killing his wife Lydia and later committing suicide. The two boys Allen,9 and Ryan, 8, are still missing.
Police suspect that Magu may have killed his wife and dumped the body at Paradise Lost in Kiambu after they found blood stains and signs of struggle in their Muthaiga Estate home and a suicide note.
“I cannot live in ridicule and embarrassment as a result of poverty,” Magu wrote in the letter that was found along with literature and audiovisual content gathered on a Nigerian pastor.
Police further revealed that Wangui’s body had signs of burns leading to suspicion that Magu tried to burn the body before dumping it.
