Police in Nakuru are probing an incident in which a senior doctor allegedly killed his two kids before attempting suicide.
The incident occurred at the doctor’s house in the posh estate of Milimani on Saturday night.
Nakuru County Police Commander Beatrice Kiraguri, who confirmed the incident, said officers broke down the door into the house and found the doctor lying still on the bed while the lifeless bodies of the two children aged three and five were in their bedroom.
“At around 9:00 pm, we received a report from neighbors that there could be something suspicious happening at the doctor’s apartment in Milimani,” Kiraguri said.
“When officers went there and broke down the door, they found the doctor lying on the bed, his kids were in the bedroom, dead,” she added.
Also found at the scene of the crime were several vials of drugs and syringes as well as a knife.
Kiraguri said they are waiting for the results of an autopsy to establish what killed the minors.
Upon regaining consciousness, the medic admitted to injecting his children with an unspecified drug. His wife was away in Nairobi during the incident.
The bodies of the two children were moved to Nakuru Municipal mortuary as investigations into the incident continue.
