A notorious killer and rapist is in police custody after he admitted to defiling and killing five girls.

According to a statement from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the suspect, Evans Wanjala, committed the heinous murders between December 31, 2019 and June 15, 2021 when defiled his victims before strangling them. 

“The minors, all aged between 10 and 15 years, were lured by the suspect from different locations within Moi’s Bridge in Uasin Gishu county, before being taken to secluded areas where he defiled and strangled them, “said a statement from DCI. 

Suspect, according to detectives, gave a chilling confession how he executed the ghastly missions. 

He gave blow-by-blow account how he took away the lives of Linda Cherono, 13, Mary Elusa, 14, Grace Njeri, 12, Stacy Nabiso, 10, and Lucy Wanjiru, 15 after defiling them. 

“Pedophile led detectives to the scene of every murder he had committed, where charred remains of the minors had earlier been retrieved,” the DCI report. 

In one instance, Linda Cherono’s body was found on June 15 near Baharini Dam after she had gone missing for some days. Her half-naked body had signs of strangulation and defilement. 

Modus operandi of the pedophile was replicated in all the other four murders where the victims were first defiled before being strangled. 

“In two such instances, the lifeless bodies of the victims were stashed in gunny-bags covered with vegetables and left to rot in the bushes,” said DCI statement read further.

“Forensic analysis at DCI forensic lab connected the suspect to the murder of the minors.”
