Emmanuel Inyama breathed his last on Saturday night according to reports given to investigating detectives.
His mother Hannah Khahugani Inyama, a lecturer at University of Nairobi told police that her son fell in the house and hurt himself.
However, Emmanuel died of stomach ulcers and obesity-related complications, contradicting the mother’s earlier reports to the police.
According to Government Pathologist Peter Ndegwa, the autopsy done on Thursday evening revealed that Emmanuel could have been stressed, and was almost 100 kilogrammes.
“He was unkempt. His hair was unshaven. He was not in a very good state and he was very obese. His ulcers could have been stress induced,” Ndegwa said.
The postmortem findings also showed that Emmanuel did not have any physical injuries on the body.
The boy’s body was discovered by the caretaker of Kifaru Front Apartments in South B.
He was lying in the sitting room of the two bedroom apartment covered in a blanket. There were flies swarming around his body and a foul stench filled the room.
