Decomposed body of 78-year-old woman found after missing for days

A 78-year-old woman from Murang’a County has been found dead in her house after missing for days. 

Acting on information given by one of her sons, police visited her home where they found the decomposing body in a seat inside the house.

The son became concerned after making repeated unsuccessful attempts to contact his mother, according to police reports.

He then called the police on suspicion that his mother might not be feeling well. 

Police reportedly found the house locked from the inside, however they have not yet ruled out foul play. 

This was an indication that the aged woman might have passed on alone in the house due to preexisting conditions. 

Police officers were forced to break into the house where they found the already decomposing body.

The time of death is yet to be established but the body was moved to mortuary for postmortem. 

The news of the woman’s body decomposing in her house comes two months after another woman’s body was found decomposed in Kiambu County.

Autopsy reports revealed that the lady had died nine months ago and her demise had gone unnoticed.

Just like in the Murang’a case, the body was found by officers who were called to the scene after a family member unsuccessfully tried reaching the 82-year-old. 

There was no suspicion of foul play at the moment but police officers are yet to release autopsy results.
