The DCI noted that all the murders targeted women and were committed during the day, with the victims’ bodies being found in the bedroom after being set ablaze.

“Preliminary investigations indicate that the bloodthirsty killer would first rape the victims before strangling them and setting their lifeless bodies on fire under a heap of clothes. On June 14, in Kiamaina, Nakuru North Sub County, a woman identified as Grace Wanjiku aged 20, was found burnt beyond recognition under a heap of bedding, in a house that had been razed down by a huge fire,” the DCI said.

Earlier this week, Nakuru East MP David Gikaria was grilled by DCI detectives over links to a criminal gang that has been terrorizing netizens in the region.

Prior to that, 27 people had been arrested in connection to the rampant murders, killings and robberies in Nakuru.
