Sharp Tool, Hacksaw Used
The heinous nature of the crime was further underscored by Oduor’s revelation that the assailant had used a sharp object to cut the skin and a hacksaw-like tool to sever the bone – indicative of a perpetrator with a chilling level of expertise and precision.
“The skin was cut with a sharp object and the bone was cut off with what looked like a hacksaw. So this is a person who knew what he was doing”He revealed
Rita Waeni had Fingernails Cut Off
Shockingly, the Roysambu BnB killer tried to cut off some of Rita Waeni’s fingernail. Speculating on the perpetrator’s intentions, Oduor suggested the possibility of an effort to conceal evidence, hindering the extraction of DNA from the victim.
“We saw that the killer tried to clip off her fingernails for reasons which I may not be able to know, some fingernails were clipped but others are intact. but the person was probably trying to hide evidence so that we are unable to get his DNA from his victim,”The forensic expert said.
Undeterred by this cunning attempt, Oduor and his team diligently collected samples for further analysis, aiming to provide crucial leads for the ongoing police investigation. The forensic expert expressed optimism in uncovering remnants of the perpetrator’s DNA, shedding light on the identity of the assailant.
“So we have taken samples for further analysis so that police can continue with investigations. We might get remnants of the perpetrator’s DNA,”Johansen Oduor remarked.
