A 50-year-old businessman was discovered dead on January 9, 2023, in his Karen house in Nairobi.
According to a police report, Francis Kiambi Kiriro was discovered dead in his bedroom, next to some foam.
Mary Waigwe Muthoni, the late man’s wife, revealed to the police that the couple had spent the night before at Karen’s Big Smoke Bar and Restaurant, where they had a meeting and several drinks with a family advocate and a relative.
Muthoni disclosed that they had some domestic differences after she declined to be her husband’s guarantor in securing a Ksh2 billion loan he was seeking to start a business.
The couple returned home at around 9:00 pm and spent the night in separate bedrooms.
“They each spent the night in different rooms and the deceased never woke up since then but could be heard snoring throughout the day and night and had vomited in his bedroom,” the report read in part.
“It was until today at around 0600hrs when she went to check on the deceased and she found him lying dead on his bed with some vomit beside the bed.”
The family called a doctor from Karen Hospital who unfortunately confirmed the death at around 9:02 am.
The officers who visited the scene said the body had no visible injuries.
