Thogori indicated that specimens had been collected from Wanjiku’s blood, kidney, liver, stomach, vagina as well as vaginal swabs and nail clippings for further forensic analysis.
Dr Charles Muturi conducted the autopsy at the Kenyatta Memorial Funeral Home on behalf of Chief Government Pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor.
Wanjiku will be buried on Friday at her parents’ ancestral home in Kangari, Murang'a County.
