The officers claim that it was only one body instead of the four that are claimed to have been found on Kisumu beach in bags.

The body that is now at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital Mortuary, according to the autopsy, had no gun shot wounds or any physical injuries as previously stated. They urged the anyone claiming the same to come in and record statements while acknowledging the fact that the police are aware of three more families that are still looking for their beloveds. However, the police dismissed the claims that the three other bodies had also been found at the lake.

"The body was found floating on the water and was taken to the mortuary. Our preliminary investigations indicate there were no injuries, including bullet wounds, on the body...We appeal to those with vital information on the death to report to police who are investigating the matter," advised Nyanza deputy regional coordinator, Kalicha Roba.

However, Anyang' Nyong'o, who visited the mortuary, said attendant Richard Onsongo confirmed that the deceased had indeed been shot.

"The mortuary attendant tells us there are two holes in the chest, which may indicate the person was shot at close range,” Nyong’o said.

On Saturday, it had been reported that the body found stuffed in a bag at Usoma beach on Wednesday had two bullet holes in the chest and a severely damaged leg.

Locals say that the body was a result of the post election violence.

Kalicha went on to warn the people of Kisumu to treat such news with caution as it is mere speculation.

So far, the police have taken the victim's finger prints in order to indentify him before his family is informed.
