Fugitive police officer Caroline Kangogo on Thursday night, July 15, shot herself dead at her parents home in Nyawa village Elgeyo Marakwet.
Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya confirmed the officer’s demise on Friday, July 16.
Kangogo was wanted for allegedly killing two men in a period of two days.
On Sunday, July 4, Kangogo allegedly shot a police constable and left him dead in his car at Kasarani police station, Nakuru County.
The next day, she reportedly killed another man at Dedamax Hotel in Kimbo, Juja.
Her parents, Barnaba Kipkoech Korir and Leah Jepkosgei Kangogo, had pleaded with Kangogo to surrender to the authorities and highlight her role in the murder of the two men.
“She should surrender to the police because she is also an officer and is conversant with matters of the law,” Korir had pleaded.
Detectives were deployed to her rural home to protect her parents in case she turns up there and turns violent.
Most of her friends are police officers and they don’t know who her next target could be.
Officers in her Nakuru workstation are nervous.
One officer revealed Kangogo and Njiru met at the station when he went to report about an incident in which a female worker had apparently stolen from him about Sh100,000.
In the course of the investigation by Kangogo, they fell in love.
The case went cold after the said staff swore to reveal why she took the money.
The two have since been lovers until she killed him in a lodging.
Kangogo withdrew Sh40,000 from a bank in Juja on Monday, it has emerged.
Detectives investigating the murder of two men have established that the money was withdrawn from a bank to enable her to move around.
Sources privy to the investigations also said they were pursuing revenge as the possible motive for the attacks, which have left two suspected lovers, police constable Ogweno and a Juja businessman dead.
Police say Kangogo had apparently taken a loan of about Sh500,00 together with Ogweno which could be a factor in her actions.
But that notwithstanding, the hunt for her is ongoing, police said adding they are pursuing several other leads.
They want her to face charges after the autopsy on the two bodies was conducted.
The police warn that she is armed, dangerous and lethal and wants the public to be on the lookout even as they intensify efforts to finally apprehend her.
DCI boss George Kinoti appealed to the public to help arrest Corporal Caroline Kangogo whom he termed rogue, armed and dangerous.
“We are cautioning members of the public, especially men, to be on the lookout for the rogue officer, who is luring men to her trap before executing them in cold blood,” he said.
