Another suspected serial killer behind the deaths of 5 girls arrested by DCI

A man suspected to have lured and killed 5 minors aged between 10 and 15 years after defiling them has been arrested by Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

In a statement issued on Saturday, July 17, 2021, the DCI revealed that the suspect identified as Evans Wafula Juma lured the minors from Moi’s Bridge in Uasin-Gishu County where he defiled and killed them.

According to the DCI, Wafula took detectives on how he lured the minors who were identified as Linda Cherono, 13, Mary Elusa, 14, Grace Njeri, 12, Stacy Nabiso, 10 and Lucy Wanjiru, 15.

DCI stated that the suspect took them to the scene of every murder. One of the crime scenes was where the remains of the murdered minors had earlier been recovered. 

“The modus operandi of the paedophile was replicated in all the other four murders where the victims were first defiled before being strangled to death and left in the bushes to be devoured by wild beasts. In two such instances, the lifeless bodies of the victims were stashed in gunny bags covered with vegetables and left to rot away in the bushes,” the DCI stated.

“During the re-enactment, Homicide detectives augmented by their Scenes of Crime, and Photographic & Acoustics counterparts, documented forensically each of the five murder scenes, as the executioner demonstrated how he abducted, defiled, murdered and dumped the bodies of the minors. Further forensic analysis at the DCI forensic lab, positively connected the suspect to the murder of the minors,” DCI added.

The DCI also revealed that Wafula had criminal record as he was arrested in 2018 for allegedly defiling two minors in Kibwezi where he was arraigned in court and freed on bond. However, Wafula went into hiding after his release prompting a warrant of arrest to be issued against him by the Makindu Law Courts.

“The suspect is currently in our good hands and will be arraigned in court to answer to charges of murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the penal code,” the DCI stated.

This comes after another self-confessed child serial killer Masten Wanjala who on Thursday, July 15, 2021 came out to implicate other suspects in the harrowing murders of over 10 children.

Wanjala claimed that he carried the murders with the help of an individual by the name of “Isaac”. He told cops that Isaac helped him carry out the murders in Kitengela and other places.
