Police officers investigating the death of a 24-year-old woman, which took place on Sunday, January 14, 2024, within Thika Road Mall (TRM) Drive in Nairobi County, now say that he used fake details to book the short-term accommodation.

A detective attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) told Nairobi News that he also used a mobile phone registered using a woman’s name to book the room.

“The man did not use his real documents when he booked the Airbnb, but at least we shall release some of his images so that members of the public can assist us in identifying him,” said the sleuth, who spoke in confidence as he is not authorised to address the media.

The woman’s identity remains unknown, and the motive behind the murder is shrouded in mystery.

Nevertheless, law enforcement officers collected her fingerprints at the crime scene and will use them as a means to ascertain her identity.

Nairobi News on Sunday, January 14, 2024, reported the details of the gruesome murder, which shed light on the horrifying incident that took place at the rental located in Green House Apartment.

Mark Auma, the caretaker of the house, made the grim discovery when he found blood in the house.

Subsequently, the management was notified, and a police report filed at Kasarani police station outlined the gruesome details.

According to the report, an unknown middle-aged man had checked into the rental located in Roysambu.

Concerns arose when the caretaker and management found no trace of the guests upon inspection, only to follow a trail of blood leading to the dustbin collection point.

Shockingly, the remains of the victim were discovered in polythene bags disposed of in the apartment’s dustbin.

“The caretaker then asked one of the managers to confirm if the guest had checked out, only to find nobody and the house was clean. They then followed the blood stain traces, which led them to the dustbin collection point where they discovered remains of a person, which prompted her to call the police,” the report stated.
