An autopsy conducted on the body of Meru blogger Daniel Muthiani, popularly known as Sniper, has revealed that he was strangled to death.
The autopsy was conducted on Friday, December 22 at Marimanti Level 4 hospital.
Chief government pathologist Johansen Oduor says that the body had marks on the neck as well as fractured ribs.
The body also had injuries on the head, with all these suggesting that he was strangled before being tossed into the river.
Also, he had fractured ribs and showed injuries on his head which suggested that he was strangled and before being thrown into a river.
He however says they took DNA samples to confirm he is the one since his body had already decomposed.
He adds that there were no defence injuries and thus raising questions on whether he was subdued to a level where he could not defend himself. The pathologist confirmed that Sniper’s body parts were intact.
Family members said the postmortem was done in a satisfying manner and appealed to security agencies to arrest culprits for justice to be served.
Sniper disappeared on December 2, and his body was discovered on December 16, 2023.
