A cursory look at his remains, now at Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi, reveals a possible struggle with his killers, who overpowered, hit and finished him.
The body has visible injuries in the back and left side of his head and on his belly. Both hands have cut wounds and the right forearm is broken.
His face has no injury but fresh blood was oozing from the nose by Monday mid-morning.
