Chief government pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor has released a postmortem report on what killed a senior DCI officer based in Karen, Ann Waiganjo.

She died on Saturday moments after collapsing at a party in Upper Hill where she was attending a colleague’s farewell.

The pathologist on Thursday said that Waiganjo died of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) as a result of a blood clot on her left leg that affected the functioning of her heart.

“She had deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which led to pulmonary embolism; a clot in the pulmonary artery,” Dr Oduor stated.

He spoke in the company of the Waiganjo’s family and DCI detectives who were present during the autopsy conducted on Wednesday.

It put to end speculation that she may have been poisoned at a party where she collapsed.

Pulmonary embolism is medically defined as a condition whereby a blood clot blocks the pulmonary artery. The clot moves to the lungs via the veins, mostly in the legs.

The condition is treatable in detected early. The doctor prescribes anticoagulants.

The late DCI officer was a younger sister to ‘fake cop’ Joshua Waiganjo, who had been jailed for impersonating an Assistant Commissioner of Police for five years.

A month ago, she hit the headlines for bigamy. She was allegedly married to a Chief Inspector and a lower cadre prison officer.
