A teenager committed suicide in Muteithia area of Maraigushu in Naivasha, a day after arriving from his rural home from Nyeri, leaving villagers in shock.
The body of the victim was found hanging from a tree near his home, 24 hours after he went missing in unclear circumstances.
According to an elder in the village Moses Kiragu, the incident had left them in shock as the teenager was of sound health and had not complained of anything.
“He has been living in Nyeri and arrived on Sunday evening before leaving for unknown place only for his body to be found hanging from a tree,” he said.
Naivasha OCPD Samuel Waweru confirmed both cases, adding that the suspect in the murder case would be arraigned in court facing various charges.
“The suspect in the murder of the two victims is in police custody while the body of the teenager has been collected and taken to Naivasha sub-county hospital mortuary,” he said.
Elsewhere, three murder suspects are still on the run after escaping from Eldoret county government cells
They were freed by mistake at the Uasin Gishu County government cells after they were mixed up with other petty offenders, who were set free on Friday.
Eldoret South OCPD Wilson Abduba says CID officers were still searching for the escaped murder suspects.
Abduba says action had been taken to the police officer who caused the mix up that led the suspects to escape. They had been arrested for killing a boda boda rider at Kipkenyo where residents protested after the release of the suspects.
