Athi River Police officers collected the remains of a middle-aged man on Friday 26th, who is presumed to have committed suicide on Lukenya Hills just a few meters from Daystar University main campus.



Athi River Sub-County Police Commander George Kashmir said that the departed had, two weeks ago, informed his family that he would kill himself at Lukenya Hills.


“He told his relatives that should he go missing for days, then they should go look for his body on Lukenya Hills,” said Kashmir.


The OCPD said introductory probe on the matter implies that the deceased consumed poison, which killed him.


“Today morning (Friday, February 26), we found two human bones at Luvai area on Lukenya Hills. Next to the bones, were tattered and bloody clothes, which we believe belong to the deceased, " the OCPD said.


"A few meters away, lay the body of hyena, whom we suspect feasted on the deceased’s remains, and because the man had taken poison, the dangerous substance killed the animal as well,” said Kashmir.


Remains of the dead were taken to Shalom Hospital mortuary in Athi River, Machakos County.
