Kenyan arrested in US for murder could have killed 750 other women

He had been arrested over the murder of an 81 year old woman.

The victim, Ms Lu Thi Harris, was found dead in her home with a pillow near her and her make up smeared on it.

Texas State Police said on Saturday that Billy Kipkorir Chemirmir, who is 45, is suspected to have been behind the deaths of two other elderly women.

750 deaths that occurred since 2010 are under review to establish whether Chemirmir was responsible.

According to Daily Nation Chemirmir was born in Eldama Ravine, Baringo where he later became a home health care nurse.

He was arrested on Thursday after being found in possession of Ms Lu This Harris' jewellery and cash. Ms. Harris was found dead in her home.

The Dallas Police were made aware of Chemirmir when a relative notified them of his behaviour while he was throwing away items in a bin.

After the arrest, Chemirmir was interrogated and found in possession of more items belonging to the deceased. He was charged with capital murder and held under $1 million bond.

The police have started investigations into his activities after two other parties reported that they suspected that he was responsible for the deaths of two other old women.

He was also linked with another attempted murder and robbery incident.

Before his arrest, Chemirmir was under surveillance after he allegedly tried to smother a 93 year old woman in October.

The woman told police that Chemirmir gained entry into her house by posing as a maintenance worker, strangled her and pushed her to the ground where he subsequently tried to suffocate her with a pillow.
