Days after DNA samples were extracted from the body of Jeff Mwathi, DCI has provided an update for Kenyans on the progress of the murder case. A report on this is due very soon.

"Detectives based at the DCI Homicide department are finalizing their investigations following the death of Jeff Mwathi, 23, who died on February 22, 2023, in unclear circumstances.

In a case that has attracted a lot of public interest, the DCI Director Mr Mohamed Amin, ordered fresh investigations into the young man’s mysterious death, to establish in greater detail the circumstances leading to his demise on that fateful morning."

A couple of days ago, DCI visited Dj Fatxo's apartment building where they analyzed several components of the murder case.

DCI says this is now at a homestretch

"So far, the Homicide team and Crime Scene experts based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory have re-visited the scene, conducted a scientific scene reconstruction exercise and recorded fresh statements from witnesses in a bid to unravel the death mystery.

Consequently, upon the recommendations of the Homicide experts the body of the deceased has since been exhumed for a fresh autopsy, and toxicological samples obtained in order to establish whether the deceased had taken alcohol prior to the incident and determine its percentage, or any other toxic substances ingested prior to his death. "

The investigators are assuring Kenyans that the murder case will be resolved.

The DCI said on its Twitter account that the findings will inform part of the final course of action as the Homicide department finalizes its investigations

"Similarly, DNA samples have been obtained from the deceased and persons of interest in this case for comparison, to ascertain whether allegations of sexual molestation before the deceased’s death hold water.

Other aspects of investigations including forensic analysis of CCTV footage obtained from the apartment where the incident occurred and cyber analysis of digital data has also been conducted for a comprehensive probe.

In the meantime, we are currently waiting for a report from the government pathologist, which shall inform part of our final course of action.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations continues to call for patience from the public and the family of the deceased as investigations into this case enters the homestretch."
