Police have launched investigations on how two male teens bodies were found dumped along Kangundo-Nairobi Highway with physical injuries on the head.

Police said in a statement that the two bodies of the teens were found lying near Brookshine gate.

Preliminary reports indicated that there might have been a struggle before the two were killed.

“The OCPD for Kamulu and his team went to the scene near Brookshine gate and found two bodies of teenagers dumped on the Kangundo-Nairobi Highway.

They had multiple visible injuries in the head and legs. They observed that there might have been a scuffle before the incident as there were broken motor vehicle parts scattered everywhere,” the police report read in part.

The victims were found with their items intact but they had no identification documents.

The bodies were moved to City Mortuary awaiting an autopsy.

In June, four friends were found murdered and their body parts chopped off in Kijabe Forest, Kiambu County.

One of them a Twitter influencer and his three mutual friends who went missing a week before in Nairobi’s Kasarani area had the three bodies badly mutilated and it seemed they were killed through strangulation and had their private parts amputated.

It was alleged that the four disappeared in a span of three days from Kasarani, Nairobi County before the gruesome discovery was made.

Preliminary investigations by police showed that the five could have been involved in online fraud as one of the victims had been arrested following a complaint at Ruiru Police Station; a matter that was later settled out of court.
