The family of beauty queen Cecilia Mwangi is today mourning the death of her mother who was found murdered and body dumped in a chicken house.
Mrs Sarah Mwangi, 59 went missing last week and police had launched a search.
The beauty queen said she tried to reach her mother last week on Thursday and on Friday but she did not pick prompting her to call a neighbour who told her that she had been missing.
Neighbours say that the smell of her decomposing body drew them to the chicken house where they found the body badly mutilated.
According to Kitale OCPD, three suspects including a house help are in police custody and are assisting in the investigations.
