• She was an accountant at the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) student at Kenyatta University.
A 36-year-old Kenyatta University master's student died as a result of severe bleeding after being stabbed in the chest, an autopsy report now reveals.
June Jerop Kangogo was found murdered and her badly mutilated body was dumped in Jamhuri Estate, Nairobi.
She was an accountant at the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) student at Kenyatta University.
The Autopsy report further indicates that the stab in the chest ruptured the heart.
June went missing on March 18.
She was in the company of her friends when she left them saying she was heading to a date with her boyfriend only for her body to be discovered by pedestrians in Jamhuri two days later.
Three suspects have been arrested and are in police custody in connection with the murder.
Jerop’s boyfriend Jessie Wafula is among three people in police custody. Others arrested are Allan Wafula and Timothy Masika.
They were arrested in the Landmawe area on March 24, 6 days after Jerop was reported missing.
Wafula is said to have picked up the deceased in her Liberty Gardens apartment in South B.
They were captured on CCTV cameras in Imara Daima, and then in the Mlolongo area before the deceased went missing without a trace.
She had spoken with her sister a day before she went missing.
“It was on a Saturday that I last spoke to her…she was in a jovial mood and she didn’t sound like there was something amiss,” Joyce Jepkemboi said.
The sister said they had contributed Sh2000 for the mother's medication but the money could not reach the mum. Attempts to reach out to her later on to send the mum the cash were futile as her phone was off.
The same day Jerop is reported to have been murdered, Wafula who is treated as the main suspect travelled to Bungoma County where he left his car and returned to Nairobi by bus on March 24.
Police believe the suspect used the vehicle to ferry and dispose of Jerop's body near Jamhuri Primary School.
Key leads in connection to the stabbing are said to have been discovered in the car.
OCPD Judith Nyongesa said they arraigned the suspects on March 27 and sought miscellaneous applications to detain them for 14 days to conclude the probe.
A memorial service of the late Jerop was on Thursday held at the Montezuma Monalisa in Nairobi.
Family, friends and colleagues gathered at the function to mourn and pay their last respect to the departed.
The deceased will be buried Saturday at their Uasin Gishu County home.
