The star reports, allegations had been made of a strange man who had been walking around the compound inquiring on the whereabouts of the grandparents, then he walked to the house.
One of the slain student’s relatives, Ms Emily Muthoni, said a stranger was seen hovering around the home for several hours before the murder incident. She stated;
“The stranger later walked into the compound where he found some children playing and requested to know if the grandparents were in. He then walked into the house.”
Only for the other children to find the girl’s body later after the stranger had left.
