Woman found dead inside lodging after her male companion goes missing

A woman who has only been identified as Becky was on Tuesday evening found dead inside a lodging in Ngara, Nairobi County where she had locked herself up with an unknown man.

The management of the premises said the man did not leave behind his details as they hurriedly rushed to the room before he sneaked out under unclear circumstances.

A worker at the lodging then noted that the woman had taken long inside the room without getting out and made a decision to find out whether everything was fine.

“When the worker checked into the room she found that some white foam was oozing from the mouth of the deceased. It is then that we alerted the police,” the police said in a report.

When police officers attached to Pangani Police Station arrived at the scene they found the woman’s body on the bed and the foam oozing from the mouth. The police processed the scene before the body was taken to the City Mortuary for an autopsy.

According to law, it is a requirement that workers at any hotel capture details of those who want to take a room. In this case the management failed to do so.

The incident happened just a week after a 64-year-old German national by the name Mr Edmund Leicht was found dead in a hotel toilet along River Road, Nairobi.

Mr Leicht, was found seated on the hotel toilet basin by cleaners on duty on March 17 evening. He had failed to leave his room at Decasa Hotel to allow workers to clean it when one of them went in to check.
