Police in Lang’ata are currently investigating circumstances surrounding the death of a 21-year-old female student of Strathmore University.
Lang’ata Sub-County Police Commander Benjamin Mwanthi told a local daily that the female student identified as Nicole Chemutai Serem was found in her hostel room at Madaraka estate.
“Her body was found in her wardrobe and she had a scarf tied around her neck. The position of her body suggested she died by suicide. However, we can’t make any conclusions until a postmortem is conducted,” said Mwanthi.
“We did not find any suicide note on her,” said Lang’ata police boss Mwanthi.
Serem had been reported missing by her college mates on Friday, June 3, and her body was recovered on Sunday, June 5 after police officers and the caretaker broke into her room and found her dead.
“Her body had no physical injuries,” said Mwanthi. The body was later taken to City Mortuary pending autopsy.
