The deceased identified as Grace Nduta Mwaura reportedly endured untold pain in the ritual-like killing that saw her eyes gouged out, body skinned and butchered.

According to Kenyan News, Police officers of the Juja police station found Grace's torso and limbs dumped at a coffee plantation on Thursday, February 2, 2017 in Kalimoni area.

The police also revealed that other parts of the deceased's body including her intestines were found stuffed in a bucket which was hidden in the ceiling of a house in Kahawa Sukari.

The eyes of the deceased were gouged out with parts of her body and face skinned and her tongue cut off.

The police also discovered Grace's laptop as well as the murder weapon which was a knife.

Grace who was a fourth year engineering student was last seen on January 29, 2016, at Githurai Kimbo police station.

In no time, the hashtag #FindGraceNduta and #PrayForNduta were started on social media by her friends, to help find the deceased.

According to the police, the deceased's elder brother is the prime suspect in the crime.

The 24-year-old university student since fled home after the police paid a visit to the family home to make further inquiry into the disappearance of the deceased.

A manhunt has now been launched to find the suspect, as the police would like to find out the reason why he fled and/or the motive behind the killing.

“We asked him to bring a torch for use in the search but he took off. We want to know why,” a detective familiar with the case told Kenyan News,

Further investigations into the case are still ongoing. May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
