A kidnapper/serial killer by the name Evans Juma Wanjala, who confessed to have brutally murdered five young girls after assaulting and defiling them, is currently in the custody of DCI.
Evan is said to have committed the henious crimes between December 31, 2019 and June 15, 2021. He first defiled his victims before strangling them to death.
What is even more sad is the fact that the minors all aged between the age of 10 and 15 were lured by the suspect from different locations within Moi’s Bridge in Uasin-Gishu county, before being taken to secluded areas where he defiled and later killed them.
After making a chilling confession recently, the killer took the DCI detectives on a re-enactment of how he executed his gory missions. He gave a step-by-step account of how he took away the lives of Linda Cherono, 13, Mary Elusa, 14, Grace Njeri, 12, Stacy Nabiso, 10 and Lucy Wanjiru, 15, after defiling them.
Wanjala led detectives to the scene of every murder that he had committed, where charred remains of the murdered minors had earlier been recovered. In one of the unfortunate incidents, Linda Cherono’s decomposing body was found on June 15, 2021, near Baharini Dam, after she went missing a few days earlier.
The incident sparked protests along the busy Eldoret – Kitale highway after Cherono’s decomposing remains were found half dressed in a bush, with signs of strangulation, defilement and physical injuries visible on her body.
The pedophile replicated the same method in all the other four murders where the victims were first defiled before being strangled to death, and left in the bushes to be devoured by wild animals. In two other instances, the lifeless bodies of the victims were stashed in gunny-bags covered with vegetables and left to rot away in the bushes.
All these details and photos were shared by the DCI on their social media platforms. Have a look at some of the photos below;
