In Summary
  • The findings of the autopsy will primarily help establish the cause of the tycoon’s death and the Post-Mortem Interval, the time that has elapsed since Mr Cohen’s death occurred.
  • The exercise had been scheduled for Tuesday but the defence team led by Philip Murgor objected to having it conducted by government pathologist Peter Ndegwa.

Government Chief Pathologist Johansen Oduor will Wednesday morning lead a team of doctors in conducting a postmortem examination on the body of Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen at the Chiromo mortuary.

The autopsy will be done in the presence of two other independent pathologists – Prof Emily Rugena representing Cohen’s family and Prof Andrew Gachii representing key suspect Sarah Cohen and other interested parties who include government chemists as well as DCI’s forensic crime scenes investigators and homicide detectives.

INJURIES

Last night, a CT scan was scheduled to be conducted on the body at Kenyatta National Hospital. The purpose of the scan was to establish the nature of fractures that may be discovered on the body and any other injuries that may be missed during the postmortem.

The findings of the autopsy will primarily help establish the cause of the tycoon’s death and the Post-Mortem Interval, the time that has elapsed since Mr Cohen’s death occurred.
