The victim died on the spot.
Upon rushing to the apartment where the victim had been thrown from, the guard and a janitor found its door wide open and the suspect was missing before raising the issue with detectives based in Nyali.
“The guard identified as Parsaoti Ole Morinket, took flight towards the janitor’s room, where he informed him of the incident
“Together, they visited the scene and established that the lifeless body belonged to a 25-year-old woman, who had earlier in the night been invited to room A10, by a man named Muyanga Suleiman,” added DCI.
Detectives search the house but the suspect was nowhere to be seen.
Crime scene detectives processed the scene and gathered information regarding the incident, before finally transferring the body of the deceased to the morgue.
