A Kenyan family is in agony following the mysterious death of their kin in the US.
Dorothy Bosibori Ongera, a mother of six, allegedly drowned in a water tub at her house in Texas on December 17th, 2020, according to her partner Obadiah Kinara.
Kinara is said to have taken her body to a funeral home with firm instructions that he is the next of kin and nobody should be allowed to view the remains.
As a result, Dorothy’s father David Ongera moved to a Texas court to seek a determination on who the deceased’s legal next of kin is.
He also sought conservatory orders stopping the release of his daughter’s body from the morgue until the matter is heard and determined.
But Mr. Kinara, through his attorney, told the court on Friday that he secretly buried Dorothy’s body at a public cemetery without involving her kids and family. An autopsy reportedly ruled out foul play in her death.
The matter will be mentioned on February 12th while the hearing is set for March 23rd, 2021.
It also emerged that Kinara was paid millions of shillings from the deceased’s life insurance provider and has since gone underground and is not answering phone calls.
Dorothy was still legally married to Lamech Nyakundi Mose, who lives in Kenya. The two were living separately but were not lawfully divorced.
