Close to one week after the police woman allegedly committed suicide, detectives have not made attempts to trace her lat movements or look into whether her death was by suicide or by murder as has been widely speculated.
According to a report that appeared in the Daily Nation on Wednesday, the DCI has also given the family of Kangogo the go ahead to bury her on Saturday, even though no postmortem has been conducted yet.
On Sunday, the DCI had dispatched a team of detectives to Elgeyo Marakwet to investigate her mysterious death. However, according to Kangogo’s father former police officer, Mzee Barnabas Kibor, detectives had not returned to the scene since they collected the body. “No police officer has visited us so far, but we have been given go-ahead to proceed with the burial,” said Kibor.
This was affirmed by the family spokesperson Robert Kipkorir. “We’ve not seen any detective since Friday. We are ready to volunteer any information. Police have given us the go-ahead to bury her, which will happen on Saturday,” Kipkorir said.
The report in the daily on the dropped Kangogo suicide probe said that the police appear to have conclude that she shot herself. “It is suspected that she might have shot herself using the firearm from below the chin and the bullet exited on the head slightly above the left ear,” a police report was quoted. “A Ceska, serial number G4670, which was cocked with a magazine loaded with eight rounds of ammunition was recovered at the scene.
