Facts about Caroline:
Plans were afoot to bury him last Saturday at his parents’ farm in Anin, Keiyo North Sub-county, but failed to materialize after he appeared to be on the run.
On Friday his parents, relatives and friends camped for the funeral until late at night pleading for the release of the body .
The family tried to break into the body and forcibly removed the body, blaming the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) for the body’s failure.
“I am just asking for the release of my daughter’s body. It is shocking that on Tuesday, DCI told us that we had arranged for the funeral on Saturday because an autopsy would be done on the day before the funeral, ”said Barnaba Korir.
Investigations into Kangogo’s death are currently being investigated by assassins, although Elgeyo Marakwet County Superintendent Patrick Lumumba remains puzzled as to whether investigators at the DCI headquarters in Nairobi were sent home to substantiate the allegations made during the initial investigation.
Kangogo was found dead in the bathroom at his parents’ home in Elgeyo Marakwet on July 16, more than a week after his colleague John Ogweno was found shot dead in his car at Kasarani police station in Nakuru.
Days later, businessman Peter Ndwiga was also found shot dead in a dormitory in the city of Juja. Both deaths were linked to a female police officer.
