Police recovered a note believed to have been written by the boyfriend before he fled the scene. It was found left on the body.

“We had agreed that nobody should betray any other and if it ever happens, then he/she dies or both die.

“Everyone will curse me but I am absolutely right, bye. Sorry to everyone, blame Alex, he knew everything about us,” the note reads in part.

The Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Machakos County have launched manhunt on the suspect.
