A Kenyan police officer was on Wednesday morning found dead with his throat slit inside his house in the country’s capital, Nairobi.
Corporal Jonathan Korir Kipkemoi is believed to have allegedly committed suicide at his home.
According to a police statement, another officer heard distressing noise from the Korirâs unit at around 4am and when he peeped through a hole on the door he saw the deceased groaning in pain in a pool of blood.
The statement indicates that the door was locked from the inside and he had to break it down.
However, by the time the officer managed to break in, his colleague is said to have already succumbed to the injuries on his neck.
Police further added that the 42-year-old cop was found with a deep cut in the throat and a stained knife beside him.
âThe deceased had a history of mental illness and had been discharged from Chriromo Lane Hospital on 10/6/2020,â police revealed.
No suicide note was found at the scene even as the body was taken to Chiromo Mortuary awaiting a postmortem and an inquest file has been opened.
