Friday, March 19, 2021 – A 28-year-old woman who was reported missing last week was found dumped in a thicket in Rongai.
Here’s a statement by DCI on the puzzling murder.
Detectives based in Ongata Rongai have launched investigations into the suspected murder of a 28-year-old woman whose body was found dumped in a thicket last evening after she went missing a week ago.
Ms. Joan Gloria Rumbale, a casual labourer at the area’s Kazi Mtaani, had in the morning of Thursday, March 11 left her home for work, never to return.
After a day of no communication and fruitless search for her, her sister informed the police of her disappearance on Saturday 13, where a report of a missing person was circulated and probing into her case initiated.
However, the detectives’ hope to find Joan safe and sound flipped after a herder bumped into a lifeless body, covered in a heap of rocks at a bush within Ongata Rongai’s Kimani Rd area in Kajiado County.
Heeding to a call by detectives who attended the scene where a lady’s body with multiple injuries lay cold, a sister identified Joan’s body.
Crime scene investigation personnel have since processed the scene.
Born at Shanderema village in Kakamega’s Mumias East sub-county, the deceased had joined her sister in Ongata Rongai where the two shared a neighborhood.
As the body awaits autopsy, detectives are capitalizing on potential leads to the perpetrator(s).
