A 35-year-old bank employee who went missing last week has been found dead in her house in Nairobi’s South B Area.
According to preliminary police reports, the employee has been missing since last weekend after she failed to report to work.
Colleagues sounded off alarm bells after the lady who lives alone failed to respond to calls or text messages.
It was not immediately clear whether her colleagues filed a missing person report to the police.

Property in Kenya
According to a police source who spoke to Kenyans.co.ke, the police forced entry after they went to her apartment in South B and established it was locked from the inside.
The 35-year-old was a cash officer at the bank.
Police noted that a spent syringe was found next to her half-naked body, but investigations have commenced to establish the cause of her death.
The body, which has since been moved to a mortuary, did not have any defensive wounds but blood oozed from the deceased’s mouth.
It was also not immediately clear the contents of the syringe which has been taken in for further investigations.
The police have stated that an autopsy will be done to establish the cause of death.
Should investigations reveal foul play, officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) homicide division will be involved to unravel the death.
