As police officers continue to hunt for a man who allegedly stabbed a 19-year-old Mt Kenya University student, fresh details have emerged on the gruesome murder.
According to a report by the People Daily, Celestine Muthengei met her death inside her hostel room at around 8pm.
According to a police report, the assailant who is still at large reportedly stabbed the Community Development student in the chest, on her back, head and limbs leaving her for dead.
Muthengei’s roommates who claimed to have witnessed the heinous act disclosed that the suspect entered their hostel room and asked for the deceased.
“He entered our room and calmly asked where the deceased was. He looked and acted polite and none of us could suspect he could be having an ill motive. In fact, some of us thought he was a classmate to the deceased,” one of the students alleged.
The suspected killer then asked “you thought I could no longer find you, you have been cheating on me” before drawing a knife from his pocket and started piercing the deceased mindlessly.
He was reported to have left after realizing the deceased was bleeding profusely.
Confirming the incident, Thika West Sub County police commander Mohamed Kofa said they have launched a probe into the incident.
