Five suspects arrested over death of Norwegian in Zimmerman

Police have arrested five suspects in connection to the mysterious death of Norwegian who died in a friend’s house few hours before he was to leave the country.

Mr Ole Stenby, 25, had been staying with his friend at Mirema Springs apartments in Zimmerman estate since September 21 and was to fly back to Norway on Sunday evening.

The host, Mr Benson Mutiso, said that he had known the deceased for the last 2 years, but that he left for Machakos on Saturday and came back on Sunday at around 8 am when he found the deceased lying dead on the couch.

The body was transferred to the City mortuary.

Police are reconstructing the scene after preliminary investigations showed that the scene could have been interfered with.

Though Mr Stenby died in the house, the host removed the body and took it to the police station.
