Investigations into the death of interior designer Jeff Mwathi have taken a different turn after homicide detectives ruled out death by suicide and instead pointed to an attempt to cover up a murder case.
Homicide detectives probing his case established that Mwathi’s body was dead when it descended from the storey building where Lawrence Njuguna (Dj Fatxo) lives, contrary to earlier reports stating that he jumped off.
The detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) further found that an adult couldn’t jump off the window as earlier alleged by the key suspects in the case.
According to the preliminary investigations, the windows at Dj Fatxo’s house were fitted with grills which ruled out the practicality of an adult jumping off.
Thus, the investigators concluded the body of Jeff Mwathi was pushed off the rooftop or the apartment’s staircase.
The detectives listed a host of persons of interest in the case, including all five people inside DJ Fatxo’s room on the night the incident was reported to have happened.
Further, police officers attached to Kasarani Police Station who had handled the case in its initial stages were also listed as persons of interest.
