Homicide Detectives have arrested two suspects who are believed to have been involved in the mysterious death of a 6-year-old Beverly Mumo Musyoki.
According to the detectives, the six year old was brutally murdered by her father Robinson Musyoki and stepmother Rose Muteti, on August, 24, 2020.
The detectives said that after conducting fresh investigations into the murder, which had earlier been dismissed as the work of powers of darkness, they linked the two to the murder.
The two were arrested yesterday at Emali, in Makueni county.
“According to Beverly’s biological mother Naomi Kiamba, she learnt of the death of her daughter through a phone call from her ex-husband, who called her on August, 24, 2020 and informed her that he was headed to Montezuma funeral home, since their daughter had fallen sick and died.
Naomi rushed to the funeral home only to be confronted by the lifeless body of her daughter bearing bruises all over the body. “ DCI said
“A report issued then by the chief government pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor, indicated that the cause of death was blunt force trauma, giving inference that the child died due to injuries consistent to a case of child abuse.”
Robinson Musyoki and Naomi Kiamba had a bitter separation and the children’s court had directed that Robinson stays with the children for one month from October 29, 2019 to December 5, 2020 before returning them to their mother.
“That was the last time Naomi saw her daughter alive, since her ex husband an engineer at the Kenya Pipeline, never returned the children and stopped picking her calls. Unknown to her, Robinson had married another woman and moved in with her in an unknown location.”
“Naomi went back to court on December, 16, 2019 and obtained a warrant of arrest against Robinson which was served to the OCS Industrial Area police station. Robinson was nowhere to be found until almost a year later, when he called Naomi with the devastating news of their daughter’s demise.”
The detectives have also established that the deceased’s 11-year-old brother who is a key witness in this case had received threats to his life, if he revealed what had transpired prior to his sister’s death.
