World's 10,000 metres bronze medalist Agnes Tirop was a cheerful 25-year-old.
She conquered the world of athletics but ended up slaughtered in her bedroom.
Her husband, who is on the run, is the prime suspect in the murder.
On her social media, Tirop posted mainly about her passion, running. Most of her photos are either of her on the track training, on on the finish line winning a race.
One of her quotes was, "Faith it until you find it..."
In another post, she wrote, "God has His time, thank you Lord and lots of thanks to my management and adidas for the support... And to all my fans tomorrow is promising."
On June 3, she shared a photo of her in a race with the caption, "Victory face...Thank you."
Here are some photos of her during happier times.
Tirop's body was found in her home in Iten. She was lying in a pool of blood, her neck had been stabbed..
Keiyo North police boss Tom Makori said there was a lot of blood on the floor, adding that they collected evidence from the scene, including CCTV cameras, for analysis as part of investigations.
“We will look for him all over and already officers are on the job because he has to explain what he knows about the incident,” Makori said.
