Detectives are looking into the death of a bank employee whose body was discovered in her home in Nairobi’s South B neighborhood.
The 35-year-old has been missing since the last weekend.
Her body was discovered Thursday evening when her coworkers paid her a visit.
It is not clear if she was sick. A used syringe was found beside her half-naked body, police said as they removed it to the mortuary.
The woman worked as a cash officer.
Police had to use a welder to break into her house where the body was found lying on the bed across facing sideway with legs touching the floor.
The body had no visible injuries but blood was oozing from the mouth, police said.
An autopsy is planned on the body to establish the cause of the death, police said.
Meanwhile, police are investigating the death of two people in a fire incident in Matungulu, Machakos county.
The bodies of Gabriel Mutua aged 40 and Margaret Kwekwe, 23, were found in their houses long after a fire had swept through structures in the area.
The incident happened on Wednesday night and police said they are yet to establish the cause.
Police officers who rushed to the scene found two iron sheet-made houses flattened with the two bodies inside.
The two bodies were removed to the Kangundo Level 4 Hospital morgue pending autopsy.
Police said they are investigating if the incident was an arson or accidental.
Elsewhere in Kibera, the body of a 55-year-old woman was found on the roadside.
It is not clear what caused her death.
Her body was discovered Thursday evening by pedestrians who knew her.
The pedestrians informed her landlady who called the police.
Police picked up the body to the mortuary pending further probe.
