Fresh and chilling details have emerged surrounding the gruesome murder of Margaret Mbitu, a Kenyan national, whose life was tragically cut short at Logan Airport in the United States.
The Massachusetts State Police have been tirelessly investigating this horrific crime.
Margaret Mbitu’s lifeless body was discovered inside her boyfriend’s vehicle, also a Kenyan national, who has now become the prime suspect in this shocking case.
The murder scene revealed that Mbitu had visible knife wounds on her neck, face, and her side near the chest area.
Tragically, she was found in the front seat of the car, with blood stains also evident inside the vehicle.
The crime is shrouded in mystery and raises many questions about the circumstances that led to such a heinous act.
CCTV footage obtained from the airport has shed light on the events leading up to the discovery of Mbitu’s body.
The footage shows the white car being driven to the airport on October 31, a day after Mbitu was reported missing.
After parking the car in the garage, the prime suspect left the scene and headed to the airport terminal to catch a flight back to Kenya.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Kenyan boyfriend had booked his flight to Kenya that Tuesday morning before arriving at the airport. Mbitu’s body was not discovered until November 1, and her death was confirmed at 7:30 p.m. by the Boston Emergency Medical Services, creating a harrowing timeline of events.
In response to this gruesome crime, US law enforcement agencies have launched a manhunt for the 40-year-old suspect. Collaborating with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Kenya, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is working diligently to locate the suspect and ensure his extradition to the United States to face justice.
As the investigation unfolds, photographs of the prime suspect have been released to the public in an effort to aid law enforcement in their search. Margaret Mbitu’s grieving family is urging the police to expedite their efforts in capturing and bringing the perpetrator to justice, seeking closure and answers in the wake of this horrifying tragedy.
