An 80-year-old woman said to have been raped by unknown persons was, on Monday morning, found lying on the floor, dead, inside her house with her mouth stuffed with clothes, according to a Kenya’s news medium, Daily Nation.
The octogenarian, Jedidah Wanjiru, had bruises on her neck, suggesting that she could have been strangled to death.
The sad incident reportedly occurred at Kanyange village, Kirinyaga County, in Kenya.
The family is now crying for justice following the brutal killing of their kin, report said.
Report said the door of the old woman’s house was not broken and family members suspected that the killers could have stormed into the house on Sunday night before the victim, who lived alone, went to sleep.
The victim’s son, Stephen Weru, told Daily Nation that he went to milk cows for her mother and found the door wide open and became suspicious that something was amiss.
“When I entered I saw my mother in the bedroom lying dead and I was shocked,” Weru said.
According to report, he hurriedly informed other family members and the matter was reported to Baricho Police Station.
