Dr John Kibosia former CEO of the Moi Referral Hospital in Eldoret said the killing of two men and alleged bathroom suicide could be a well-calculated “cover-up” that needs to be unravelled by detectives
Did Kenya’s most wanted cop killer elude police for 10 days then decide to shoot herself? This is just one of the many baffling questions running in the minds of many people after the rogue female cop turned up dead after more than a week on the run.
Caroline Kangogo Chemutai’s lifeless body was discovered in a bathroom at her parents Elgeyo Marakwet home still clutching onto a pistol, yet no one within the compound had heard any sound of a gunshot. A ballistic expert who spoke soon after Kangogo’s body was found, opined that the scene did not seem disturbed as one would expect in such circumstances.
Even more bizarre are claims of a “suicide note” having been found in which Caroline is said to have asked for forgiveness from the family of constable David Ogwen whom she shot dead, she is further said to have requested to be buried in a “wedding gown. Dr Frank Njenga said Caroline had vowed to kill her husband like the two other men “why would she kill herself before this?”
The experts found it “bizarre” that Caroline was found still “holding” a pistol hours after her demise. Experts are urging police to launch thorough investigations saying the “suicide scene and note” could have been stage-managed by a third party. Photos of Caroline’s corpse have gone viral on social media with many questioning the suicide theory.
Even more bizarre are claims of a “suicide note” having been found in which Caroline is said to have asked for forgiveness from the family of constable David Ogwen whom she shot and killed at point-blank range. The same Caroline is further said to have requested to be buried in a “wedding gown”, one expert said that the note could be the work of some unscrupulous police officers who were shielding Caroline from arrest, and when matters became hot, they panicked and killed her for fear that she may have exposed them if found alive. The idea that she authored a note asking that she be cremated soon after is just a clever way by her killers trying to avoid being exposed if an autopsy was carried out.
Top city psychiatrist Dr Frank Njenga said it had become evident that Caroline suffered from a “depression driven” personality disorder that drove her to homicide acts of “perceived revenge.” Kangogo had vowed that her husband would suffer the same fate as her victims. The couple had two children aged 8 and 11.
Njenga said the bathroom suicide would appear to deviate from the “usual script” but there were always the last-minute thoughts before someone kills and perhaps, she changed her mind “She was not through with her revenge mission.” argued Njenga adding that paranoid killings follow a “predictable pattern”. Caroline had vowed to kill her husband like the two other men “why would she kill herself before this?”
Why did she kill her two alleged lovers? Such baffling questions he said would likely be un-ravelled at the public inquest but need more investigations. As ballistic experts cast aspersions on the alleged suicide note, the Marakwets professional Association lobby group is also demanding a thorough probe by police. In a press statement lobby national chairman Dr John Kibosia expressed “grave” reservations on the death of Kangogo and the earlier killing of two men in separate incidents. Kibosia a well-done public inquest will shed more light on the matter.
Kibosia, a former CEO of the Moi Referral Hospital in Eldoret said the killing of two men and alleged bathroom suicide could be a well-calculated “cover-up” that needs to be unravelled by detectives.
He said the Association would write to police boss Inspector General Hillary Mutambayi and DCI director George Kinoti to demand justice for the Marakwet family and alleged victims of Caroline. He said the entire community was “deeply saddened” by events of the last one week and sent condolences to bereaved families.
