Disappeared Kikuyu musician has been found dead and his body floating at the crocodile prone Masinga dam in Embu County.


Edward Irungu Njaro alias Wanjaro Junior is perceived to have committed suicide by jumping into the dam.


Wanjaro who went missing on July 14 from his Kasarani home is said to have sent a message showing that he was in many debts.


“When I go missing, don’t waste a lot of time looking for me. My body will be in Sagana River,” a message he allegedly sent read in part.


His vehicle was discovered in Kamweri village near River Tana.
