It has now emerged that fugitive killer cop Caroline Chemutai Kangogo interacted with a matatu driver in Iten town and sent a short message to her brother before traveling to her parent’s home in Anin Keiyo, Elgeyo Marakwet County.
On reaching her parents’ home, police claim Kangogo did not speak to anyone but went straight to their bathroom where she allegedly killed herself by shooting her head with a pistol on Friday morning, July 16. Confirming the incident, Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya, said Kangogo arrived at her parents’ home on Friday, July 16, at around 5 am.
According to Kenyans.co.ke,Carolyne’s father, Barnaba Kibor, a former police officer, said they were shocked with their daughter’s action but said he was not in a position to comment about it. He only asked the public to give him and the family privacy at the moment.
“I have nothing to say at this moment,” a distraught Kibor said.
It has also emerged that the cop was rooming freely in Iten town. Two residents of Iten town told Kenyans.co.ke that they were interacting with the killer cop on Thursday 15th July.
One of them, a matatu driver, said that Kangogo approached him on the eve of her death and wanted to board his PSV to Anin. Her parent’s home.
“She didn’t speak with me. She searched the vehicle from the driver’s seat to the back. I suspected that she was Kangogo because she was shy and kept hiding her face when I spoke with her” the driver told the local publication
“She had a face mask and had also covered herself with a maroon scarf. She stood behind my matatu for a while before she left but came back and boarded another matatu,” added the driver.
The driver added he raised the alarm to his colleagues that he had seen kangogo, but no one could take him seriously.
” Everyone assumed me” I then reached out to a police officer via phone call and informed him that I had spotted Kangogo,” the driver said.
The driver further claims that the officer he called told him that Kangogo withdrew money from a Police Sacco in Nairobi on Thursday, July 8.
Carolyne Kangogo’s body was later collected and taken to Iten referral mortuary awaiting postmortem.
