According to their uncle, the University students were running a pork business, and on the fateful day, they had more than Ksh 10,000 profit with them. 

However, the money was nowhere to be seen when their lifeless bodies were found at the Embu  Level 5 mortuary.

"They were doing small business, and on that particular day, they were selling pig meat at home and they had money with themselves, over Ksh 10,000.

This was the profit of the day, we saw them in the mortuary, they had nothing in the pocket," Felix Ntiga told the press on Wednesday.

The family has accused Manyatta police station of taking them in rounds, yet witnesses saw officers arresting the two. 

"The first place we went was Manyatta police station, we were told there were no such people arrested. I searched all police stations," their father Ndwiga said.
