A father and son aged 45 and 7 respectively were on Monday, October 8, hacked to death by unknown people and their private parts hanged on a tree in Burat, Isiolo County.
Confirming the incident, Isiolo County Police Commander Charles Ontita said the man’s severed head was placed next to his lifeless body which had deep cut wounds while his private parts were hanged on a nearby tree which stands next to the deceased’s homestead.
Mr Ontita said the boy’s head was also severed and his body had deep cut wounds, seemingly inflicted by a panga.
Mr Ontita said investigations have been launched. A family member, however, has been identified as a key suspect to the murder since the deceased had recently reported the family member’s criminal activities to police.
The bodies of the two were taken to Isiolo District Hospital for preservation.
