Police suspects husband for Tirop’s murder

Police suspects husband for Tirop's murder

Agnes Tirop, a Kenyan athlete and a world record holder was found dead after being stabbed.

The murderer(s) is(are) yet to be uncovered by the police but her husband is the prime suspect as he went missing after the incident.

The world class athlete was killed at her home in Iten, a Western town in Kenya.

The world now mourns the two-time World Athletics Championships bronze medallist who died at 25. She reminded the world of how great she is winning the women’s only 10km road race in Germany last month.

Investigation is currently ongoing:

“When [police] got in the house, they found Tirop on the bed and there was a pool of blood on the floor.

“They saw she had been stabbed in the neck, which led us to believe it was a knife wound, and we believe that is what caused her death.

“Her husband is still at large, and preliminary investigations tell us her husband is a suspect because he cannot be found. Police are trying to find her husband so he can explain what happened to Tirop,” the head of police in the area, Tom Makori said.
