An autopsy carried out on the body of slain Nairobi-based Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen revealed that he died an extremely painful death.
Images from the scan showed that Cohen’s killers crashed his skull, dislocated one of his legs and broke his hands, according to Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad (AD).
DNA materials collected from the deceased’s fingers and under his fingernails are expected to provide credible leads in uncovering the people behind the gruesome killing, the publication reported.
Cohen’s decomposing remains were found inside an underground water tank at his home in Nairobi’s Kitisuru estate last Friday, close to two months after he went missing on July 19th.
“Cohen was murdered in a horrible way. His hands, feet, and neck were tied before he was killed. The murderers took their time, "Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti said at the scene where the body was retrieved.
A postmortem examination on Cohen’s body was done at Chiromo Mortuary in the presence of his widow Sarah Wairimu, his sister Gabrielle Cohen, the investigating officer and other family members.
Wairimu, who is the main suspect in the murder of her husband, was escorted to the facility under tight security for the postmortem.
Wairimu is set to undergo a mental assessment before pleading to murder charges next week.
