Body of kidnapped 9 year old daughter of magistrate found inside forest


Nine years old Maribel Kapolon, daughter of a senior magistrate, in Kenya, Ms Caroline Kemei, was declared missing on September 6. Her corpse was later found inside a forest.

Preliminary police reports stated the girl, daughter of Senior Resident Magistrate of Githongo Law Courts, had been kidnapped while walking home after alighting from her school bus.

Witnesses said Maribel was called by someone who knew her before she rushed to his car. She had been dropped by a school bus and was walking to her home with three other pupils of Consolata Primary school, when the incident happened.

The girl rushed to the car of the stranger leaving the other children. Police explained that the girl had been called in a similar manner by people said to be her relatives.

“The man called to her and she rushed to him shouting “habari uncle”. There was no commotion, hence her fellow pupils and those in nearby shops would not have suspected anything sinister.” says the report.

Shortly afterwards, the kidnappers demanded a ransom of Sh500,000 but never followed up on their demand.

A search was mounted them with police and family appealing for information that would lead to her whereabouts.
