Richard Ng’eno, the estranged husband to the late Caroline Kangogo declined to address mourners at his ex-wife’s funeral in Anin, Keiyo, Elgeyo Marakwet County.

Mourners at the burial on Thursday wanted him to address them just like his other family members but he chose to take a low profile.

In one of the draft messages recovered from Kangogo’s phone after her death, she said that she had thought of killing Ng’eno.

She said that he took her through a painful marriage which was the cause of rejection by her father after things failed to work between the two of them.

After murdering Police Constable John Ongweno who she has an affair with – and claimed to love him so much – and Peter Ndwiga, she traveled to Mombasa where Ng’eno works.

He is also a police officer working with the Kenya Maritime Authority. The killer cop said she watched her estranged husband come in different wars and with different women.

Caroline contemplated shooting him but she chose to forgive him for the sake of their two children aged 11 and 8, here text messages read.

Her brother Mark Kangogo said her sister was a nice person and nothing close to how the media described her.

Speaking at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital after a postmortem on Caroline, Government Chief Pathologist Dr Johansen Oduor said that it is true she died of a single bullet wound to her head.

Dr Oduor in his report said that the bullet entered the body through the right chin and exited from the left side of the head with a trajectory going through the spine to the brain.

“When I looked at the gunshot wound entry, I established that it was a contact wound which means the gun was on the skin when it was fired as evidenced by a hole and soot around the area. This is what we call muzzle imprint in technical terms,” Oduor said.

He added that although he is a professional in ascertaining the causes of death, he cannot determine if or not Caroline was killed.

“My job as a pathologist is to investigate the cause of death. Manner of death involves many things that are supposed to be done and that’s why we have taken samples to the lab to help us establish the manner of death which can either be suicide, accident or natural cause,” he added.
