Relief after woman’s head found

A  family from Mwea in Kirinyaga County can now breathe a sigh of relief after the head of their kinswoman whose beheaded  body  was found dumped in Athena area in Thika West Sub County over two months ago was found.

The  head  was  collected in Masinga Dam in Embu County three weeks ago, before it  was transferred to Thika Level Five  Hospital  Mortuary for postmortem, whose results confirmed it belonged to  Ann  Wangui  Wachira.

The  exercise  that was carried out on Tuesday further revealed that the deceased mother of five was four months pregnant  and had sustained injuries in the womb which had led to clotting of blood before she was beheaded.

She  had  gone  to attend  a  burial at Kimunye village, Kirinyaga County on April 26, but never arrived at the venue.

When  her  husband with whom they had reunited in January could not trace her that day, he reported the matter to Kianyaga police station and the search for her whereabouts commenced. Her decapitated body was found the next day.

Police  in  Thika  said they are investigating to establish how the body found its way in the area yet she lived elsewhere.

Area  DCIO, Hussein  Bakari  said they were working closely with investigative officers  from Embu and Kirinyaga Counties to unearth the reasons behind the murder as well as the culprit(s) involved in the murder.

He  called on anyone with information to report to the police so that the killers may be brought to book.
