Kirinyaga county has not come to terms with the death of one of their members who was beheaded and found dumped in Athena area in Thika West. The head was found in Masinga Dam in Embu county before it was transferred to Thika Level Five Hospital mortuary for postmortem and whose results confirmed it belonged to one Ann Wangui Wachira.
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 of the burial ceremony.
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 immediately commenced. Police are investigating who was behind the pregnancy and if it was a contributory factor behind the murder of Wangui.
Officers from Embu and Kirinyaga counties out to unearth the reasons behind the murder as well as the culprit(s) involved in the heinous are on the ground.
