Tuesday, September 24, 2019 - A mother and her daughter were found dead in a house they shared in Nairobi’s Golden Gate Estate in South B on Monday evening.
According to reports, the two were last seen on Sunday after they were dropped at home by an unknown person.
The mother, 73-year old Judith Mwai, a former staff at Treasury and her 47-year old daughter, Catherine, a retired banker, were found dead in their bedrooms by a relative who paid them a visit on Monday.
Judith's body was found on her bed with a sisal rope wrapped around her neck and tied to the bed with blood oozing out of her mouth.
Catherine’s body was found in her bedroom’s floor with injury marks around her neck which, according to the police, pointed to possible strangulation.
Nairobi Police Commander, Philip Ndolo, told reporters that preliminary investigations into the double homicide indicated that the two had been murdered.
“A close assessment of the scene indicated that there were signs of a struggle, further pointing to a possible murder,” the police said in their report.
However, investigators were yet to establish any leads to a suspect or the motive behind the macabre killings.
Nothing was stolen from the deceased. Their mobile phones were found in their respective bedrooms.
The bodies were taken to Chiromo Mortuary for an autopsy.
