Son to Kiambu couple killed alongside 3 children arrested as DCI probes homicide

The mutilated bodies of the couple and their three children were found in their Karuri village home, 48 hours after their farm worker was killed.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 9 – Was the recent killings of a five member family in Kiambu County sanctioned by their own blood?

What is the motive and why has the deceased couple’s son labeled his slain parents as satanic and killers?

These are some of the questions homicide detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) are grappling to find answers, for a mystery that has left a country shocked to be resolved.

Detectives Saturday confirmed arresting the couple’s son, a university student, who suspiciously went missing following the killings.

While it was initially believed he was in school, his phone signal was tracked to multiple places and at some point, in Naivasha, within Nakuru County.

“He was in Thika at some point and later Kabete,” a senior detective privy to the ongoing murder probe told Capital News.
