PHOENIX, ARIZONA

Mystery still surround the death of a Kenyan Woman, Stella W. Kiarie, 29, who was found dead in a parked car on a freeway shoulder in Peoria, Arizona.

Authorities are reportedly still investigating the incident to ascertain exactly what happened to Ms Kiarie.

According to Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS), an American law enforcement agency with focus on protection of Arizona highways, officials received multiple reports early Sunday of a vehicle stopped on the left shoulder of the Loop 101 near Bell Road.

According to the Associated Press, when troopers arrived at the scene on Sunday morning, they found the woman, whom they identified as 29-year-old Stella Kiarie, with a rope around her neck.

INJURIES

On Monday, DPS officials told journalists that the woman had injuries that were not consistent with the minor collision of the car against the wall.

This has raised suspicions of foul play and the Kenyan community in Arizona is calling on the authorities to speed up investigations to unravel how Ms Kiarie died.

“The Kenyan community in Arizona is in shock. We are urging the authorities to speed up investigations because we need answers and we need to know exactly what or who murdered Stella,” said John Kamau, a Kenyan living Phoenix, Arizona.
