The cops have arrested one Jactone Odhiambo who is a Nairobi based freelance photographer as the prime suspect in connection to the brutal murder of Edwin Chiloba.

The photographer was a long-term friend to the deceased.

The police are now looking for two suspects who helped load Chiloba’s body in a metal box before it was dumped at Halingham near Kipkaren.

Kimulwo said that after investigations the deceased appeared to have been strangled and one eye was gouged out.

Uasin Gishu county DCI boss Peter Kimulwo said the motive of the killing remains unknown.

He lived within Kimumu area and police followed up to a certain plot where they interrogated tenants who confirmed he lived in room No 11 near Noble Bliss Plaza.

Kimulwo said on new year’s eve Chiloba and friends went to Tamasha club and came back at around 3 am to where they lived.

When they arrived neighbors heard commotion and cries which subsided. The neighbors did not follow up and the deceased was not seen but on 3rd neighbors saw a vehicle with two people loading a metal box into the vehicle and left.

Neighbors said they also smelled some foul stench from the house.

“We suspect the noise heard earlier by the neighbors was the time the deceased was killed,” Kimulwo said.

The arrested suspect is said to have told the neighbors that a rat had died in the house after the neighbors sought to know why there was stench emanating from the house.
