Police and witnesses said the body was found in his room hours after he had missed reporting to work on Wednesday morning.

Onlookers stated that a belt was used in the suicidal mission.

The man was alone in the room near the Village Market.

“The body was found swinging near the room window. He appeared to have died long before security landed there,” said a police officer who was at the scene.

“We can authenticate the death of a US government employee. US Embassy Nairobi spreads its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased," a US Embassy Nairobi spokesperson stated.

Officials broke into the hotel room. A suicide note was found next to the bed.
