The news on the murder of celebrated Kenyan athlete Agnes Tirop has left sorrow in the hearts of many. 

Agnes was found dead on Wednesday afternoon at her house in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County.

She is said to have returned home two days ago following reconciliation by relatives and friends. 

The news of her death was received with anger from her neighbours, who pelted stones at a nearby car out of anger.
