Details have emerged on how attackers made their way into the home of U.S-based businessman Nicholas Njoroge Warunge and killed everyone in the house.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) suppose there were at least five attackers.

Sleuths led by Head of Homicide Investigations Department at the DCI Martin Nyuguto are exploring evidence that will lead to the arrest of the suspect or suspects behind the brutal murders of four family members.

According to the detectives, the absence of any form of forced entry or exit in the razor wire that surrounds the compound shows the killers were known to the family.

Murderers on the run

Detectives believe the murders made their way into the house through the back door, where they found Anne Njoroge, then killed Maxwell Njenga, Warunge’s 13-year-old nephew.

His son Christian Njenga, was the next victim who detectives say was killed and his throat slit on his bed.

The suspects left behind crucial leads chasing after the defenceless Warunge; bare footprints from the back door all the way to the spot Warunge is believed to have been killed.
