As the curtains finally came down on the Kitengela 4 whose mysterious disappearance and search has been keenly followed by Kenyans, the entire episode has concluded on a harrowing note.

Obuong’s body was reportedly found on Tuesday, April 20, by sand harvesters near Mukungai River along the Murang’a-Iyego-Kangema road.
The body which was not immediately identified as that of Obuong was taken to a morgue in Murang’a and recorded as an unidentified male adult. His body was later identified by his family yesterday at the Murang’a morgue. Two bodies that were later found in similar circumstances are suspected of being those of Jack and Benjamin
