Jackton Odhiambo, the main suspect in the murder of fashionista Edwin Chiloba has confessed to killing the model over allegations that he cheated on him.
According to Langas OCPD John Odhiambo, Jackton executed the murder with the help of his two friends who are still at large.
The suspect says that he murdered Chiloba as revenge for betraying him in their relationship.
Odhiambo who had been staying with the deceased for a period of one year in Eldoret was arrested yesterday as the main suspect in the murder.
The two used to live together.
Chiloba’s caretaker Alex Nyamwea says that Jackton Odhiambo called him using Chiloba’s phone on January 4th informing him that he was vacating the house they lived in.
And true to his words, Odhiambo vacated the house with immediate effect.
Odhiambo and Chiloba were spotted having fun at a popular club on the outskirts of Eldoret town on January 1, 2023, as they ushered in the New Year.
Police established that duo left the club at around 3:00 am and headed to where they lived.
When they arrived at the house, the neighbours said they heard some commotion which subsided after a while.
Neighbours claim that they did not follow up on the cause of the commotion.
They, however, told police that they spotted two people loading a metal box into a vehicle whose registration number was concealed and left.
Chiloba’s decomposing body was found stashed in a metal box on the Kipenyo–Kaptinga road in Kapsaret constituency, Uasin Gishu County.
Boda Boda riders said that they saw a vehicle, whose registration number was concealed, dump the box along the road and they alerted the police.
The deceased’s adoptive parents Peter Pfaltzgraff and his wife Donna said their hearts were broken following Chiloba’s death.
