However, the college student is said to have gone to his father’s rental houses at Chepseon where he asked for a key to one of the rooms.

“He told the security guard that he wanted to rest in one of the rooms. 

The guard obliged and gave him the key.”

His body would later be found in the room with a syringe in his arm.

The body was taken to Lipton Central Hospital mortuary pending investigations.
