It is now emerging that professional hitmen were involved in the murder of Edward and Sarah Morema.
This update came from a preliminary police report released yesterday by Masaba North Sub-county Police Commander, Robert Ndambili.
The top cop said that the initial evidence points to the motive as being a fight over land that had also caused the murdered couple to lose their nephew in 2021.
The killers tied the couple's hands behind their backs using a wire, and slit their throats. What has convinced the police that experts were involved is the lack of evidence left after the murders.
"We are engaging higher mechanisms of rounding them up. This will take some time,” Ndambili said.
Also, the hitmen would take all key CCTV systems away, severely affecting the evidence-gathering capabilities of the sleuths.
This news comes after cops had revealed that the murdered couple had received a mystery visitor on the horrific night, according to the househelp.
The visitor whose identity the househelp didn't know seemed to be familiar to Edward and Sarah Morema with detectives suspecting that he might have been among the hitmen doing his own reconnaissance.
What was also odd was that the househelp and the farmboy who were sleeping ing the compound didn't hear anything untoward on the night of the murder.
"It is unbelievable that the house help and farmboy were present in the compound when the murder was happening, and yet they could not tell something was going on wrong."
And that's not all, the househelp went on with her duties the next day like nothing had happened further puzzling the investigators.
She would only spring into action after the late couple's grandson, Samuel Matundura, called her at 10 a.m. telling her that he couldn't reach them by phone. He said,
“We had talked, and we agreed to meet. He had been in Western Kenya for some construction activities and had just returned home. So I wanted to know how they were doing."
