Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have launched investigations into the mysterious death of a 75-year-old German national in Nyeri.
Police said that Weise Klaus Armin had been involved in a heated argument with his wife, Rosemary Wangui, 38, before his body was later found hanging from the door frame of their master bedroom.
According to Wangui, who filed her report at Nyeri’s Central Police Station on 15th October, she had visited her ailing mother in the nearby Othaya area earlier in the day.
But on returning to their home in Nyeri’s Muhasibu Estate in the Gamerock area, she allegedly found her husband breathing fire, accusing her of infidelity.
An argument then ensued forcing her to flee for dear life, after the man allegedly threatened to stab her with a knife.
The deceased then locked himself in the bedroom, where his body was later found.
Police arrived at the scene and broke into the bedroom, only to find Armin’s body hanging from a rope.
Homicide experts from DCI headquarters in Nairobi, with a backup team from Crime Research and Intelligence Bureau and Scene of Crime detectives, immediately took over the matter.
They have since visited the scene, analysed it forensically, taken statements from various sources, and are now waiting for the deceased’s kin to arrive from Germany for the postmortem examination.
