Police in Athi River, Machakos County, are currently probing the distressing homicide of Sheila Odoyo, a renowned Ohangla dancer known as 'Sheila Wegesha', to her fans discovered murdered in her home on Thursday, May, 9.

Odoyo was found in her matrimonial bedroom in the upscale Hill View Estate, lying lifeless in a pool of blood with severe cuts on her throat.

Her 18-year-old daughter, Linda Okinyi, notified the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) officers of her mother's demise when she went to deliver lunch on Thursday afternoon.

Okinyi informed detectives that her father, Jackson Bambo, aged 45, left their residence around 1 a.m. on Wednesday driving a Mitsubishi Outlander, without addressing the alarming incident.

Neighbours, while expressing shock over the tragedy, noted that the couple experienced their fair share of marital conflicts.

Sheila Odoyo, 38 who also owned a JB Liquor Store in Umoja Estate alongside her husband, was a popular figure in Nairobi and its environs, particularly within the Ohangla dance scene.
