The funeral home is currently being painted in a negative light after it was involved in a `missing body parts’ saga. This has resulted in the Kenyatta University Funeral Home Management and three pathologists to record a statement over missing body parts of Mr Peter Macharia.
The deceased was a Kiambu Businessman and he’s believed to have committed suicide. However, with the missing body parts saga, the attention has shifted with questions going unanswered over what is more of a homicide and not suicide as earlier reported.
The parents of the deceased moved to the court through their lawyer Ms.Beth after the second post-mortem revealed that there were some missing body parts. Substructures of the neck were missing which led the family into believing maybe his cause of death was not as a result of suicide but strangulation.
The findings will lead into the third post mortem that the family will be engaging in. The deceased wife had reported that she had found her husband hung on a loose rope and that statement was opposed by the deceased parents who firmly believed their son was killed.The first autopsy had revealed suicide but the family sought after another autopsy which revealed the thyroid bone and thyroid cartridges were missing and this is where the family moved to court believing that his death was a homicide.
The KU Funeral home has however disputed the findings saying that they were not involved in the 1st and 2nd autopsy but this has been refuted by the family members who want the missing body parts to be accounted for.
