Wanted policewoman Caroline Kangogo has shot herself dead at her parents’ home in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
Police said they narrowed down on her on Thursday and have been there all night.
“She shot herself in their bathroom using a pistol she had,” police told the Star on Friday.
The incident happened at about 7.30 am Friday at Nyawa village, Tambach division in Keiyo.
Her parents called police who found the body in a pool of blood in the bathroom.
Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya confirmed the incident.
“We are told the mother found her holding a pistol which she used to commit suicide in the bathroom in their rural home,” he said.
She still wore her yellow hood at the time of the incident.
These are the same clothes she wore when she killed two men on July 5, 2021.
This marked the end of her hunt, which had been ongoing for two weeks.
Kangogo is a suspect in the killing of two people, including police Constable John Ogweno, in Nakuru on Monday, July 5.
She later allegedly shot dead Peter Ndwiga Njiru, 32, in a lodging in Juja, Kiambu county, about 200km from where the police officer died.
An autopsy showed Ogweno died of a haemorrhage.
Njiru’s autopsy said he died out of bleeding from the head.
Ogweno’s firearm with 15 bullets is yet to be recovered but police said they found some of his clothes in Kangogo’s house.
Police have recovered one of her phones, which was dumped in Nakuru.
One officer revealed Kangogo and Njiru met at the station when he went to report about an incident in which a female worker had apparently stolen from him about Sh100,000.
In the course of the investigation by Kangogo, they fell in love.
The case went cold after the said staff swore to reveal why she took the money.
The two have since been lovers until she killed him in a lodging.
Police say Kangogo had apparently taken a loan of about Sh500,00 together with Ogweno which could be a factor in her actions.
