Two men have been butchered and burnt alive by an angry mob after a teenager was discovered raped and killed with one of her eyes removed.
Mercy Silau Pareyio
Mercy Silau Pareyio was stabbed about five times and had her head crushed with a blunt object in the violent murder.
The 17-year-old was believed to have been gang-raped before the horrific killing, which took place near to her village in Kenya’s Narok County, around 60 miles west of the capital Nairobi.
Her corspe was discovered in a nearby forest after the incidence, and taken to a university morgue, where her parents were brought to identify her remains, reported local media.
Alex Pareyio, her father described her as everything a parent wanted in a child.
The 17-year-old’s rape and murder caused serious outrage in her village, Empatipat.
“She was everything a parent wanted in a child. She was obedient and loved education. She wanted to become a doctor and was passionate about it,” her father told Kenya’s Nation online newspaper.
When her parents reported she was missing to the police they were then asked to to identify a body in the mortuary at Egerton University Hospital.
“We were shocked to learn that she was the one who had been murdered,” her father said.
Angry villagers then took it upon themselves after suspecting Dennis Kireu, a local casual labourer of the attack on Mercy Silau Pareyio.
About 30 people then marched to the apartment of another man, Robert Njoroge Ng’ang’a, before breaking through its iron roof to capture him and drag him out.
“The crowd, numbering over 30, forcibly broke into the house by cutting the iron sheet roofing,” cops told local media.
“They nabbed the suspect and drove him, together with Mwangi, to Olorropil where they lynched them. The lynch mob then burnt their bodies.”
Authorities from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in the town of Njoro said the victims social media records revealed she had been in constant communication with a man called Mwangi and that they had agreed to meet on the day she was killed.
“But this is not to say that the people who were lynched were the ones who murdered the girl. That is what we are still investigating,” the officer said.
Alex Pareyio told local media he believes his daughter was groomed on social media by a man claiming to be an officer in the nearby town of Njoro, who said he was going to marry her.
“The day she left home, she eloped with the man,” he said.
“When we woke up in the morning, her four brothers and sister told us that she fled home the previous night and that they did not know where she had gone to.”
Kizito Mutoro, Narok County Commander revealed that a woman and three men have been arrested during the weekend in connection with the butchering of the two men.
