Daughter to a Meru Magistrate has been found dead and her body dumped in a forest outside Meru Town after she was reported missing.
The girl identified as Maribel Kapolon had been reported missing by her family after she disappeared on her way from school.
The 9-year-old girl was a student at Consolata Primary School and before her disappearance she was last seen past Total Petrol Station.
Her death only comes weeks after slain Rongo University Student Sharon Otieno was raped, killed and her body dumped at Kodera forest.
Sharon was abducted alongside Nation journalist Barrack Oduor in what seems like a love triangle gone sour.
Postmortem on the cause of her death was brutally stabbed 8 times, strangled and was possibly raped by her assailants despite being heavily pregnant.
Delivering the findings government pathologist Johansen Oduor says
“Sharon was stabbed three times on the neck, four times on the back and on the left side of the abdomen.”
Her body also had several other bruises indicating there was a struggle before she was killed.
Her unborn baby also had bruises and stab wounds, leading to it’s death. Sharon is yet to be buried as the family has not settled on a final date.
