Who are they? Police puzzled by three male bodies dumped in Nakuru
Three male bodies were on Friday, October 14, 2022, evening found dumped at Dundori Forest in Bahati, Nakuru County.
Police say that the bodies are yet to be identified, they asked anyone who has a missing relative or friend to check with them.
Nakuru North Sub-County Police Commander Mr Samson Andanje said that the victims appeared to have been killed elsewhere before their bodies were dumped at the scene.
“The bodies were found in the forest by youth who were hired to clear bushes on the Nakuru- Dundori road,” said Mr Andanje.
This is not the first time bodies have been discovered within forests or in rivers this year.
Sad stories of human bodies, tortured, mutilated, and dumped in rivers and forest thickets have become a very disturbing norm.
In June 2022, residents of Lari in Kiambu County found the mutilated bodies of four men within Kijabe Forest.
The four were later identified as Fred Obare, Joseph Njau, Moses Nyachae and Elijah Omeka.
To date, it has never been established whether they were killed elsewhere and their bodies dumped in the forest.
According to eyewitnesses, all four bodies were brutally mutilated, in what detectives claimed was gruesome torture that the victims underwent at the hands of their killers.
Mr Njau had a past criminal record after he was nabbed in possession of cocaine which he had imported from Uganda.
The politician who was eyeing the Njiru ward representative seat was nabbed with drugs in Westlands, Nairobi County.
He was ironically known to be an anti-narcotics crusader.
For the other three, Police said they had been accused of being behind a cryptocurrency fraud mostly targeting victims outside the country.
It is believed they disappeared after fleecing their latest victim of Sh1 million in bitcoin.
Bitcoin is a digital currency that operates free of any central control or oversight of banks, and tech-savvy criminals have taken advantage of this to hack into people’s bank accounts, buy bitcoins, and leave little to no trail.
