Investigations into the death of Sharon Otieno, a Student whose body was found at Kodera forest, have revealed that she might have been raped.
Sharon was killed, her body slashed open despite the fact that she was heavily pregnant but the final results of her post-mortem are expected today.
Nyanza Regional Criminal Investigations Coordinator Michael Barasa said Homabay governor Okoth Obado was a “person of interest” to the detectives pursuing the case.
“We have already handed over the case to the investigating team from Nairobi, but the governor is an obvious person of interest to the investigators.”
According to Daily Nation, investigations have led to text messages that Sharon Otieno sent to the governor minutes before she was murdered.
Detectives claim that Sharon may have sent two texts messages to Obado and Oyamo shortly after 8pm asking:
“What is happening? We have been left in the hands of strangers who are very rough.”
Immediately after sending the text, Sharon’s phone was reportedly switched off. Detectives have not been able to recover it since.
Sharon’s family is calling out for justice to be served on those who killed their daughter.
