Homicide detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters have taken over investigations into the death of nominated MP David Sankok’s son, Memusi Sankok.

The detectives who will reconstruct the scene at Sankok’s house on Thursday are also expected to interrogate those present during the death of the 15-year-old reported to have shot himself using his father’s shotgun.

The Martin Nyuguto-led homicide team from the DCI headquarters will be at nominated member of parliament David Sankok’s Narok home Thursday morning, seeking to reconstruct the scene of his son’s death.

The detectives will also do another round of questioning of family members and staffers who were present during the incident following glaring inconsistencies in the statements already recorded by detectives in Narok.

An autopsy conducted on Memusi Ole Sankok’s body will also be repeated Friday headed by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor in the presence of family and detectives.

At the home of the legislator, forensic detectives will be out to look for gun powder residue in the room where Memusi is said to have shot himself. They will also take measurements of his hands and the shotgun used to try to reconstruct how he was able to pull the trigger with the nozzle pointed at him.

His dominant hand according to detectives should test positive for gun powder residue if at all he pulled the trigger. The detectives will also collect residue from the clothes he wore at the time of his death.

In the reconstruction, the detectives will quiz Sankok on how he handles the keys to his firearm safe and how the 15-year-old was able to access it. The MP will also be questioned how the Form Three student was able to operate the firearm.

The Johansen Oduor autopsy that is expected Friday will be seeking to probe the entry and exit points of the bullet that killed Memusi. The grey areas on how the first post-mortem examination was conducted prompting the repeat autopsy.
