Decomposed body of university student found outside hostel


A decomposed body of a Chuka University student was Monday evening (April 23) discovered hanging from a rope tied to a mango tree behind the men’s hostel.

A passerby spotted the body and alerted the police.

The body was identified to be that of Michael Gikonyo; a Second Year Bachelor of Computer Science student.

“Gikonyo’s body had partially decomposed. I suspect he killed himself a few days ago,” said Chuka/Igambang’ombe OCPD Barasa Sayia.

Sayia says the reason why Gikonyo committed suicide is yet to be established.

Gikonyo’s body was moved to Chuka County Referral Hospital mortuary.
