Three bodies were on Friday, October 14, retrieved from Dundori Forest in Nakuru North Sub-County.
The three who were discovered at around 4 pm had body injuries and are said to be young men who are yet to be identified.
Confirming the incident, Nakuru North Sub-County Police Commander Samson Andanje said locals discovered them and alerted the area assistant chief, who reported the matter to his office.
"We went to the scene and found the bodies of three youthful men placed next to each other. They appeared to have been tortured as they bore physical injuries,” Andanje noted.
The decomposing bodies were discovered by residents who had been contracted by a government agency to clear a section of the forest.
The police boss maintains that the trio must have been killed elsewhere before their bodies were dumped in the forest.
“Within my area of jurisdiction, I haven’t received any missing person’s report. I, therefore, believe the victims were killed elsewhere and the bodies dumped in Dundori Forest,” he said.
The bodies have been moved to a Nakuru morgue for postmortem.
The matter remains under investigation.
