Police have launched investigations after a young couple was found dead at their Umoja Zone 8 house in Kamukunji, Nairobi county, on Monday evening.

The bodies of the 18-year-old man and his girlfriend were discovered after their phones went unanswered for days.

The young man’s grandfather and his guardian from Seychelles who’s been paying his rent and occasionally stayed with them at Hse no. 11 plot 1450 of the Umoja Zone 8 houses had attempted to call him in vail.

This triggered the grandfather to visit their house only to be met by a foul smell emanating from the inside of a locked door.

The door, DCI said, had been locked from outside using a padlock.

The officers discovered the lifeless body of the young man’s lover just by the toilet.

The body had multiple stab wounds on the shoulder, breasts and lower abdomen.

Further search led detectives to the bedroom where the man’s body was found sprawled on the floor and the neck tied with an auxiliary cable.
