Homicide detectives have made a major breakthrough in unraveling the mrder mystery of 6-year-old Beverly Mumo Musyoki, who was brutally klled by her father Robinson Musyoki and stepmother Rose Muteti, on August, 24, 2020 in Kenya.
The minor who was at the centre of a protracted battle between her estranged parents, suddenly d*ed on August 24, 2020, while living with her father in Mlolongo, Machakos County.
In a report filed at Mlolongo police station, the girl had complained of chest pains and was declared dad on arrival at Mater Hospital in Nairobi. An autopsy done later by four doctors, including government pathologist, Johansen Oduor, revealed that she ded of traumatic injuries.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations, DCI, in a statement on Monday, May 9, 2022, said after conducting fresh investigations into the m*rder, which had earlier been dismissed as the ”work of powers of darkness,” the homicide experts opened a fresh can of worms linking the two to the murder and arrested the them on Sunday, at Emali, in Makueni county.
“According to Beverly’s biological mother Naomi Kiamba, she learnt of the dath of her daughter through a phone call from her ex-husband, who called her on October, 24, 2020 and informed her that he was headed to Montezuma funeral home, since their daughter had fallen sick and ded,” the statement read.
“Naomi rushed to the funeral home only to be confronted by the lifeless body of her daughter bearing bruises all over the body.
“A report issued then by the chief government pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor, indicated that the cause of d(ath was blunt force trauma, giving inference that the child died due to injuries consistent to a case of child abuse.
“Investigations by the homicide detectives indicate that following the bitter separation of Beverly’s parents, a children’s court had directed that Robinson stays with the children for one month from October 29, 2019 to December 5, 2020 before returning them to their mother.
