A 51-year-old medical doctor whose body was found in an abandoned car in Gitaru, Kabete was tortured before he was killed, a postmortem examination has revealed.
According to pathologists, David Chege suffered a fractured ribcage. They said the injuries in his neck were an indicator he was strangled.
Chege was found dead last Wednesday in a car along with the bodies of three men identified as Martin Musyoka, 38, from Mwea; Shadrack Juma Njuguna, 38, and Joseph Mwangi from Dandora.
The mysterious murders have since been linked to a dispute with officers from Kinyago AP camp who are accused of fatally shooting Mr Chege’s 24-year-old son Alex Ngugi.
Ngugi was killed by police in Kinyago, Dandora, on suspicion that he was a criminal. Police said they recovered a homemade pistol and two bullets from Ngugi.
A postmortem confirmed he died of a gunshot wound that pierced through his chest and lodged in the rib cage.
Ngugi’s father had led a protest to the Kinyago AP camp with his friends demanding information on his son’s shooting.
Detectives from the DCI headquarters homicide unit have taken over investigations.
The murder has been likened to the June 23, 2015 murder of human rights lawyer Willie Kimani , client Josephat Mwenda and taxi driver Joseph Muiruri.
