Obado through his spokesman has denied claims linking him to the murder of Sharon who was said to be seven months pregnant.

The Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti has dispatched a special team of homicide detectives to Migori and and Homa Bay Counties to probe the murder of Sharon Otieno who had been abducted with Nation Media Group Journalist Barrack Oduor.

Sharon's father Douglas Otieno confirmed on Wednesday that he viewed his daughter’s body at the Oyugis Level Four Hospital in Oyugis at 1am.

Sharon's father had rushed to the hospital after police informed the family that a woman’s body had been found dumped in the forest.

She had been abducted alongside Nation Media Group journalist Barrack Oduor.

He stated that investigations have been launched and those found culpable will face the full force of the law.

"As we mourn this untimely death, we take this opportunity to assure the public, and the media fraternity in particular that this matter will be expeditiously investigated and the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be made to face the full force of the law," the statement from the Government Spokesman read.
