A woman who drowned with a man after the car they were in plunged into a dam at Titanic area in Juja, Kiambu County was identified by her family.
The body of the 22-year-old woman identified as Fridah Warau Kamuyu from Mathioya, Murang’a County has been lying at Nairobi City Mortuary for more than a week.
She had been marked as unclaimed since January 18 when the incident happened.
On Thursday, January 26 the family of the woman identified the body as their kin.
An autopsy conducted on the body of Kamuyu on Thursday revealed that she died as a result of drowning.
Further, the postmortem report indicated that she had bruises on her left arm.
She died together with Titus Kiiru, a 39-year-old Kiambu businessman.
The two had been together in a Nissan X-trail vehicle which they had packed at the edge of the dam when it plunged therein, witnesses said.
The area is a popular hangout spot for revelers.
The woman, who was the first to be retrieved from the dam, could not be immediately identified since she had no identification documents in her possession.
The man was identified by his family soon after the vehicle was retrieved from the water and images that showed the car’s registration number was shared in the media.
The deceased man’s wife, Margaret Kiiru, had appealed to members of the public to help her trace the family of the lady who died alongside her husband in order to have closure.
The deceased businessman is set to be laid to rest on Friday, January 27 even as police say the circumstances under which the car plunged into the river leading to the death of the two remain unsolved.
