Police officers investigating the brutal murder of a Kenyatta University student, June Jerop, announced on Thursday, April 6, that they had made significant progress in the case.

The authorities stated that they had made a key connection between the main suspect and one of Jerop's colleagues, who has been arrested as a person of interest.

Makadara sub-county police commander, Judith Nyongesa, disclosed that they had established that the 36-year-old was communicating with two men on the day she vanished.

The police are yet to reveal the motive for the murder. However, it was reported that the colleague of the deceased was related to the main suspect.

While the police declined to confirm whether the two were related, the movements and connections between their phones reveal that they were together at the time, which led to the arrest of the suspect.

Jerop's sister, Joyce Jepkemoi, has raised concerns about the connection between the main suspect and some of her sister's colleagues.

She suspects that it might have played a role in the murder. She has urged the police to speed up their investigations and bring the culprits to justice.

June Jerop's lifeless body was found on March 20 near Jamhuri Primary School along Ngong Road.
