US police blame Kenyans over cold murder case

A homicide detective in the United States has criticized the Kenyan community for failing to provide crucial information that could lead to the arrest of persons responsible for killing a Kenyan woman and her two daughters in August 2007.

“We strongly believe the Kenyan community in metro Atlanta can be invaluable in helping us unravel this case”, said lead investigator Detective John Dawes. He appealed to anyone with information to share it with the police.

On August 1st 2007, Kenyans woke up to the sad news of the murder of Jane Kuria, 45 and her two daughters, Isabella, 19 and Annabel, 16 in their Powder Springs home. Jane’s last born son Jeremy Kuria, who was seven years old and who was seriously injured during the attack, has since recovered and relocated to Kenya. His visiting cousin, Peter Thande, 10, was also beaten by the attackers.

Two years on, questions still linger as the waiting continues but the ferocity of the attack clearly shows that whoever was behind the killings was, “very angry with Jane,” according to Det. Dawes.
