A 67-year-old man committed suicide after he was found engaging in unnatural act with a sheep at Sakutiek village in Narok North Sub County.
The area Sub County Police Commander Frederick Siundu said the old man sought shelter in his neighbor’s home following a heavy downpour in the area.
However, the family decided to accommodate the man in their homestead overnight as the rains continued to the wee hours of the morning.
“The deceased was given a room adjacent to the sheep pen where he would spend his night,” said Siundu.
At about 2am, the family was woken up by a commotion from the sheep pen and upon checking using a torch, the man was found engaging in unnatural affairs with the animals.
The Police boss explained that the family called their neighbors whom together agreed to resolve the matter in the morning hours.
“Since it was at night, the village mates decided to look into the matter the following morning where an appropriate action would be taken against the old man,” explained the police boss.
But in the morning, they found the old man had hanged himself using a mosquito net in the room that he slept.
The body of the deceased was taken to Narok Referral Hospital mortuary for preservation awaiting post mortem.
The Commander asked residents to be careful when inviting strangers because some can turn out to be monsters that defile their daughters or commit other capital offences.
“Most of defilement cases reported are committed by culprits well known to the children. It is important for parents to learn whom to accommodate in their homes and whom to avoid,” he said.
