The Star correspondent in Siaya, Eric Oloo, was hit by a blunt object in the head and abdomen, resulting in excess internal bleeding that led to his death, a postmortem report released on Saturday, November 23, has revealed.

Pathologist Gabriel Juma shared the report details with K24 Digital.

Oloo’s body was on Thursday morning (November 21) found dead in the house of his alleged lover, Sabina Kerubo, 36, a deputy OCS at Ugunja Police Station.

It is alleged that Oloo, 41, found other men in Sabina’s house on Wednesday night, resulting in the fatal confrontation.

Ugunja Sub-County Police Commander, Ibrahim Muchuma, on Thursday told K24 Digital that Kerubo was arrested alongside her daughter, house-help, and a middle-aged man identified only as Victor, who is said to be a chef in Ugunja Town.

Muchuma revealed that Kerubo’s landlord, Moses Ochieng, reported at Ugunja Police Station that Kerubo had — on Wednesday night — gone to his house to request for his vehicle so that she could take her “ailing” husband to hospital.

The landlord said that upon reaching Kerubo’s house, he saw Oloo lying lifeless on the floor, with cut injuries in his head.

Ochieng, thereafter, alerted police, who arrived at the scene of crime and arrested Kerubo, her daughter, house-help and the said-Ugunja Town chief, Victor.

Oloo’s family have, however, expressed dissatisfaction in the manner in which investigations into their kinperson’s death are being conducted.

Michael Nyagilo, Oloo’s uncle, says he fails to understand why Kerubo is free, yet she hasn’t been arraigned.

“She ought to have been taken to court, and released on bail or detained as investigations continue. That did not happen. She is out and free,” Nyagilo told K24 Digital.
