Missing Mount Kenya University student found dead

Police in Nakuru are investigating the death of a Mount Kenya University student whose body was found in her rented house seven days after she went missing.

She was identified as Sharon Achieng, 24, and was a second year student residing in Kiti Estate.

Ms Rebecca Wanjiku, a neighbour told the Nation that they didn’t think the student was in the house.

“On Wednesday, another neighbour said there was a pungent smell emanating from the house. More neighbours complained of the same smell,” she said.

They decided to call the police officers to the house on Friday.

They said the police broke the door and found her body on the bed.

Her brother, Mr Ibrahim Kevin Ochieng, said Ms Achieng was epileptic.

“Knowing her condition, we always made sure to talk to her every day and visit her at least every month to make sure she is okay,” Mr Ochieng said.

He said there was blood on her beddings and floor.

Nakuru County Police Commander Hassan Barua said they are waiting for postmortem results to ascertain the cause of death.
