“I had gone to check on my friend to check the progress of the wedding. The front door was closed. I tried knocking several times but there was no response. The car was outside, so I knew they were inside. I got in through the back door and found their bodies hanging from the top of the roof” A friend to the couple told 254splash.co.ke.
The bodies were taken to Nyeri mortuary for post moterm examination.
