A nine year old daughter of senior magistrate Caroline Kemei’s body was found in Gitoro Forest in Meru after missing for about a week.
The girl, Maribel Kapolon, went missing on 6 September, after reportedly being kidnapped while walking home from the school bus, by unknown assailants.
Witnesses report that she was called to a nearby car by someone she was allegedly familiar with, so she rushed to the car. That was the last time she was seen, around Milimani area, Meru.
A search had been launched since then, to find the pupil from Consolata Primary School.
Maribel Kapolon was the daughter to Senior Resident Magistrate of Githongo Law Courts in Meru County, Ms Caroline Kemei.
She was found on Saturday in Gaturo Forest on Saturday, her body already decomposing. Her body was moved to mortuary as investigations are still undergoing.
