The body of missing billionaire Dutchman, Tob Cohen has been recovered on Friday, says Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti.
Authorities said the body was found inside a septic tank at his home in Kitisuru, Spring Valley, Nairobi
“The body has been found in what we initially thought to be septic tank at his home but we later realized it was an underground water tank,” Kinoti told Capital FM News from the scene of crime, where he was accompanied by detectives from the DCI’s Homicide Department.
He told journalists at the scene that, “the body has been positively identified by family members and it is confirmed that it is Cohen, these people are absolutely heartless. Cohen was murdered in his own residence. It is very unfortunate, but we have the suspects in custody.”
Kinoti told journalists more suspects will be taken in, “we have two suspects in custody already, and we are looking for more.”
Cohen, a celebrated golf tournament organizer, was reported missing two months ago, and his wife was arrested and detained until Thursday when the prosecution told the court that they had evidence to charge her with the murder.
Cohen is a former Chief Executive Officer of Dutch conglomerate Philips East Africa who has lived in Kenya for many years.
