An autopsy report has revealed that the bullet which killed a Nairobi businessman in his house in Kilimani on Friday night hit him from a close range, tearing through his heart and left lung.
The postmortem, carried out by the chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor, also showed the bullet was fired from a high position, killing Omwenga, on the spot.
The autopsy shows the victim also had a collapsed lung and suffered internal bleeding.
Kevin Omwenga, 28, was shot at his apartment on the seventh floor of Galana Suites on Galana Road by a man described as a “bodyguard” one of his associates after an alleged dispute over the sharing proceeds of a successfully executed fake gold con game.
As the post-mortem was being conducted, businessman Chris Obure and his bodyguard Robert Ouko were in court over Omwenga’s death.
Ouko is the key suspect in the murder while the gun said to have been used in the killing reportedly belongs to Obure.
The deceased’s brother Wycliff Omwenga told police that he was in the kitchen preparing supper when he heard a gunshot emanating from the bedroom.
He rushed there where he saw Bodo leaving in a hurry and found his brother lying on his back with blood oozing from his chest when he entered the bedroom.
He was pronounced dead at the Nairobi Women’s Hospital where he was rushed after the shooting.
