BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,23RD OCT 2017-Postmortem conducted on the body of Hillcrest Preparatory School head teacher Gabriela Maina who was killed last Thursday in Nairobi’s Karen area has revealed that she was shot with the bullet puncturing her lungs.
Government Pathologist, Johansen Oduor who conducted the postmortem on the body of the Australia born woman, said that the bullet discharged at close range entered through the left side of her neck and exited through the right side of her back.
“The single shot punctured her lung and caused a lot of internal bleeding. Both her lungs collapsed,” Dr Oduor said at the Lee Funeral Home, where the body of the teacher is being preserved.
Dr Oduor said the body had no other injury caused by any other object.
Gabrielle Maina was shot at around 10.30 am as she returned to her home after dropping her son at a friend’s home.
A detective privy to the investigations into the daylight murder of the mother of two, said the police were pursuing leads that would help in the arrest of the killers, who used a motorcycle for the mission.
Investigators are banking on an armature clip shot using a mobile phone by a motorist who was also driving along Warai Road where the teacher was murdered.
Karen OCPD, Cunnigham Suiyanka said Ms Maina was shot by men on a motorcycle. Her killers took her mobile phone and her purse.
Ms Maina’s body is scheduled for cremation tomorrow Wednesday October 24th at the Lang’ata crematorium.
