Eric Maigo, the late Nairobi Hospital Finance Director, succumbed to severe blood loss occasioned by multiple stab wounds- an autopsy report has revealed.
News about Maigo’s tragic encounter broke on Friday, September 15, when his neighbor alerted the police after hearing him groan in pain in Nairobi’s Woodley estate.
On Saturday, September 16, Johanssen Oduor – the Chief Government Pathologist revealed that Maigo was stabbed 25 times in the chest, neck and face hence causing external and internal bleeding.
“He had been stabbed multiple times and what killed him was actually external and internal bleeding,” the pathologist told journalists.
Maigo was Defenseless
Further, the autopsy report established that the deceased did not have defensive stab wounds hence the conclusion that he was either deeply asleep or intoxicated.
Additionally, the pathologist took samples for further tests in an endeavor to trace the perpetrator.
According to Oduor, the traces of DNA material from the samples collected could help in tracing the perpetrator.
“We have taken some samples for analysis. There is what is called the Locard law of exchange. When two bodies collide, there is an exchange of material. There is exchange of DNA,” Oduor explained.
Meanwhile, detectives in Nairobi continued their investigations and efforts to trace a woman suspected to have stabbed Maigo.
Maigo’s Night of Terror
According to the police, Maigo returned home on Friday night in the company of a woman and proceeded to his house in Woodley.
What followed, the police said, was a period of loud music from Maigo’s house which the neighbors noted was unusual and disturbing.
Later in the night, the neighbors heard Maigo moaning in pain.
However, efforts by the neighbors to access Maigo’s house were not successful as the suspected woman reportedly refused to open the door.
Upon receiving the alert, police officers from Kilimani Police Station arrived at the scene only to find the lifeless body of Maigo.
At the time, police said, the suspected woman had already escaped by jumping over the perimeter wall.
