Investor shoots himself dead

09 July 2013, 13:34 James kabotia

Fear has gripped Naibor village in Laikipia East Sub County after a 60-year-old investor shot himself dead.

Speaking to the media, Muramati location Chief Macharia Rwengo said that the investor, identified as Grants Stephenson, was found dead in his tent after he shot himself on the head.

The deceased is said to have bought five hectares of land in the area last year, where he established a camping site.

Rwengo said, “Stephenson’s workers heard a gunshot and when they entered his tent which he was living in, they found him lying dead on his bed.”  

The administrator said that the workers reported the incident to him at around 6AM adding that his team accompanied him to the scene where they found the investor dead while holding a pistol in his hands.

Residents said that the investor was a shareholder at Wells Fargo Company and was believed to have been living alone after separating with his wife four years ago.

Rwengo however said that the deceased neither left behind a suicide note nor informed his employees that he was going to shoot himself.

Nanyuki police officers took the body to the Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary where a postmortem is expected to be conducted.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old- man was found dead at a saw dust dumping site at Majengo Estate in Nanyuki town.
James Mwangi’s body was found by passersby on Sunday morning.

Laikipia East police commander Maurius Tum said that the body had no physical injuries, adding that the cause of the death has not been established yet.

Tum said that report was made at his station by the father of the deceased Patrick Muchiri.

The police boss said Muchiri reported that his son had mental disorders.

The body was removed to Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
