While Government Chief Pathologist Oduor who presided over the exercise couldn’t comment on the matter on its conclusion, a Dutch Newspaper now reports that their national had his head smashed.
According to the publication, the body of Dutchman Tob Cohen who was murdered in Kenya shows many traces of violence. This emerged from a scan of the remains, sources close to the investigation report to the site.
AD reports that the scan images of the body show, among other things, that Cohen’s skull was smashed, his hands broken and his left leg twisted.
According to their sources, the scan, which was made at Kenyatta Hospital , also showed that the Dutchman had attempted to fight off his attackers.
The remains showed signs of torture the police said.
“Cohen was murdered in a horrible way according to the publication. His hands, feet and neck were tied before he was killed. The murderers took their time,” George Kinoti said.
The police launched a manhunt on the killers last weekend. We are looking for around four people.
They would have done the ‘dirty work’, ranging from the murder itself to cementing the opening of the water tank into which Cohen’s body was dumped.
The detective suspects Cohen’s wife Sarah Wairimu Kamotho of planning the murder. She claims to be innocent but was arrested at the end of August based on the analysis of her telephone traffic. That also made allegations against her alleged lover Peter. He has also been behind bars since last week.
Sarah who has insisted on her innocence is reported to have collapsed on seeing the body of her husband.
“Cohen’s widow looked at the body twice shaking her head and said she wasn’t sure it was her husband.”
