Mystery surrounds the death of a woman whose body was discovered next to a note demanding Sh2 million from her family.

Police launched investigations after finding the body of Beth Mwihaki’ a 30-year-old woman who had gone missing.

According to reports, the ransom letter had warned that the woman would be killed if her family failed to pay the Sh2 million.

Mwihaki’s body was semi-naked, wrapped in a bedsheet, and placed on the bed.

Her body was discovered by her relatives, at her house in Kayole estate, Naivasha after she failed to answer their numerous phone calls.

Investigations

Naivasha OCPD, Samuel Waweru, said police had launched investigations to establish how Mwihaki was killed.

Elsewhere a 21-year-old man was on Wednesday jailed fr ten years for killing his grandmother over a porridge flour dispute.

Maxton Omondi confessed to causing the old granny’s death. The court had heard that he fatally attacked Jael Akuru, 82, on February 8, 2021, in Ramba Village, Rarieda Sub-County.

Siaya High Court judge, Roselyn Aburili, said the sentence was “lenient” because Omondi proved he did not intend to kill his granny.
