The body of a middle-aged man from Kongowea in Mombasa County was on Tuesday morning found floating in the Indian Ocean.

Evans Wekesa Wawire’s body was spotted in the sea in Nyali by fishermen, who had reported to work.

Police say Wekesa’s body had no harm scars to indicate struggle before his death.

The law enforcement officers, however, suspect that Wekesa was killed and thrown into the ocean.

Wekesa’s work supervisor at Texas Security Company, Justus Ouma, said the deceased left his Kongowea home for work on Monday evening, but did not arrive at his Nyali work station.

“We tried calling him on phone, but both his cell phone lines were off,” Ouma told K24 Digital.

Police say the cause of Wekesa’s death remains unclear, though a postmortem examination will reveal how he lost his life.

Wekesa’s body was taken to Coast General Hospital mortuary.
