Parliament cop found dead in her Nairobi house, lover on the run
A police officer attached to Parliament, Hellen Kwamboka, was on Saturday morning found dead in her house in Umoja Estate, Nairobi.
Kwamboka was found on her bed, with deep cuts on her forehead.
Police report also indicated that “blood stains were smeared all over the house”.
Hellen Kwamboka, who last reported to work on Thursday, May 23, left for home at around 7pm with police saying that it was the last time she was seen in public.
“She was expected at work on Friday, May 24, but she didn’t show up,” a report filed at Buruburu Police Station read.
According to police, Hellen Kwamboka’s colleagues began looking for her on Friday, when they failed to reach her on phone.
“They [colleagues] decided to go to her house at Umoja Estate, Gaikuyu Road, plot number 44, house number 42, [where], they found the house locked from [the] inside, and, [consequently], suspected that something was unusual. The house was broken into and the body of the officer was found lying on her bed with a deep cut on her head, and with blood stains all over the house,” says the police report filed by one Helen Ndambi.
Police suspect that Kwamboka was first strangled and thereafter, fatally hacked.
“No murder weapon was recovered from the scene, which has already been processed by DCI officers,” reads the police report.
“It is believed that her boyfriend, who visited her [Hellen Kwamboka] on May 23, had murdered her before escaping. The phone of the deceased was not traced and seems [it] was stolen and switched off,” said police.
Her boyfriend, who is on the run, is suspected to be behind the gruesome act.
Kwamboka’s body was taken to Chiromo mortuary as police hunt for her boyfriend.
