Police are looking for a man suspected to have killed his lover at their rental house in Muhuru Bay, Migori County before disappearing.
The body of 33-year-old Magrate Akinyi was found in their house lying in a pool of blood in their house by neighbours who had seen blood flowing from inside the house.
According to Kithi sub-Location assistant chief Dickens Nyanguso, the suspect reported to be a Tanzanian must have fled the house at night after the fatal attack.
“It is like she was killed at night then the suspect fled, we are yet to establish the motive of the killing,” said Nyanguso.
The administrator also said the deceased had separated with her husband some day’s back and was living with her suspected attacker.
“They were living together with the man who is suspected to have committed the crime,” said Nyanguso.
“We are yet to identify the suspect’s, but some sources have told the police he could have escaped to Tanzania,” he added.
Migori County police boss Joseph Nthenge said they have launched investigations into the motive of the attack and will soon arrest the suspect.
“We are requesting members of the public who might have any information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to the police,” said Nthenge.
Police have visited the scene and the body transferred to Migori County Referral Hospital mortuary.
