A 28 year old man and his 19 year old girlfriend were on Sunday afternoon found dead at Kaumoni village in Machakos County, having travelled from Nairobi a day before.
Initial examinations pointed at suicide as the two were discovered hanging from the roof with ropes tied round their necks.
The man identified as Dennis Pius was nearly standing, held upright by a rope, while the lady Susan Ndeto, was in a kneeling position.
Reports indicate that they had spent the previous night at the man’s home.
The girl’s mother is said to have rang her daughter’s phone on Sunday at around 10am. When she couldn’t contact her, she decided to travel to Machakos where she met the two lifeless bodies inside the one-roomed house.
Neighbours say they had seen the couple that morning and didn’t notice anything wrong.
Ruth Mwende the area assistant chief confirmed the incident adding that investigation into the whole saga have started.
The two bodies have been ferried to Kangundo hospital mortuary awaiting post mortem.
