Police on Monday recovered two bodies of university students from an apartment near Kenya Methodist University, Meru County.
According to reports, the authorities were alerted when the neighbors experienced foul smell coming from the room.
The Meru police mentioned that they suspect that the man killed the woman before committing suicide.
The female’s body, Ann Kanario Kaura, was found lying on the bed in a pool of blood with stab wounds on the thigh, while the man’s body, which was found hanging from the roof had a deep cut on the left thigh.
The authorities also reported that they found a knife on the floor that was also littered by broken utensils and clothes.
Meru County Police Commander Patrick Lumumba noted that they suspect the deaths happened at least three days ago.
He also revealed that Ann’s body appeared to have been strangled.
Lumumba added: “It appears the two might have struggled. The door was locked from inside with a big padlock.”
Nelson Kinoti, the house caretaker, stated: “On Saturday, we didn’t suspect anything since it is normal for lights to be on and to have curtains drawn.”
Ann, 21, was a student at Kenya Methodist University, while the man identified as Nyaga, was a student at Chuka University studying Criminology.
The bodies were later taken to Meru Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
The police further noted that they have launched investigations into the case.
This incident follows a series of murders and suicides that have been happening across the country raising concerns from all Kenyans.
