Detectives believe they are on the trail of a complex tale of money, love, blackmail and murder as they try to piece together the last moments of Mary Wambui Kamangara, the businesswoman whose lifeless body was retrieved from a dam nearly two weeks ago.
This follows the interrogation of Michael Githae Mathenge, a car-hire services operator, who on Friday led police to a thicket in Ruiru where evidence key to resolving the mysterious death of Ms Kamangara was recovered.

Ms Kamangara was killed in the house of her husband Joseph Kori Karue’s mistress, Judy Wangui Mungai, on Saturday January 26 under circumstances that are yet to be fully established.
Detectives initially went with the lead given by Ms Mungai that she and Mr Karue were at the scene of the murder. Later, detectives removed Mr Karue from the scene without exonerating him following their tracking of his phone signal and vehicle.
Mr Mathenge also appeared to remove Mr Karue from the scene during interrogation in custody after he was arrested on Monday.
