Naivasha’s Kongoni area murder suspect in police custody


    A football player at a local flower farm soccer club, Julius Owaka, 32, has been arrested by detectives from the Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB) and DCI Naivasha, following preliminary cybercrime findings that linked him to the murder of a 26-year-old woman believed to be his wife whose decomposing remains were discovered at a thicket in Naivasha’s Kongoni area.

    According to the couple’s neighbours in Duro area, the two had lived together for five years before differences started rocking their blissful union, leading to irreconcilable differences that led to their separation last year. The deceased opted to move back to her parents’ home a few kilometers away.

    However, early this year, the man started making romantic overtures to the deceased in a bid to rekindle the dying ambers of their once beautiful marriage. Unaware that she was being lured to a death trap, the deceased left her father’s compound on January 31, not to be seen again, until her decomposing remains were discovered 9 days later in a thicket within Duro area, three kilometers from her father’s home.

    Investigations into the murder began immediately and agents based at CRIB joined their Naivasha based counterparts, in a manhunt for Wanjiru’s killer. Through forensic cyber & digital analysis, the sleuths traced the suspect to Githurai 45, where he had since gone into hiding, after committing the crime.
