In the February 22 incident, Mwathi who was an interior designer, was captured on CCTV footage falling from the 10th-floor apartment window of the house belonging to DJ Fatxo.
According to reports, Mwathi had been in DJ Faxto's house after spending the night partying with the popular Mugithi singer alongside his cousin and driver.
CCTV footage from the Redwood apartments shows Mwathi with DJ Fatxo and three unidentified women returning to the DJ's apartment around 3 am.
According to the police report, there was another man, a relative of the DJ, who arrived at the apartment in a different car.
The DJ was also seen on CCTV leaving his apartment with the three women around 4 am, while Mwathi was left in the house with two other men.
Mwathi's family have since buried their kin although they are asking for justice.
