The police reported that the woman, whose body was found in the river in Lucky Summer, had sustained stab wounds on her neck, likely inflicted prior to being thrown into the water.

Initially believed to be discarded luggage, the sack retrieved by the police was later found to contain the woman's lifeless body.

Her remains have been transferred to the City Mortuary, pending identification and a post-mortem examination.

Nairobi's Police Chief, Adamson Bungei, noted that no arrests have been made and the woman's identity remains unknown.
