Kenyan Woman Kills And Eats Her 7 Day Old Son's Intestine, Also Kills Her Friend's 2 Kids

Friday, June 26, 2015

A 20-year-old Kenyan woman, Catherine Muthoni, has been arrested for killing three children. One of them her one-week old son; she removed his intestines and ate them raw, Nairobi News reports.


The woman who lives in Korogocho, a slum in Nairobi, is said to have slit open her week-old son’s stomach, removed his intestines and ate them before going to her friend’s house and killing two other children.

The friend, Nelius Muthoni, told the police that the vampire woman came to her house in the morning and attacked her by trying to strangle her.
“She kept asking me why I named my son Peter Kimani and asked if I knew that my mother-in-law had been eating me. She said a lot of things and even said that there were demons inside me.”

“I ran out of the house to seek help from neighbours and when they arrived, they found her holding my 10-day-old son by the neck and under her feet was my four-year-old daughter. She was stepping on her neck.
“The neighbours pushed her out of the house and tried to help the children but they were announced dead at a nearby clinic.”

When she was pushed out of the house, the woman was said to have run to the Korogocho Administration Police post where she reported that she had killed her child.

A police officer said:
“As we were interrogating her, neighbours who learnt that Muthoni’s children had died, also came here. They wanted to beat her but we shielded her.”

A neighbour who was at the police post said the woman did not seem shaken and even asked for a soda at some point.

The police have also concluded plans to take her for a medical examination to ascertain her state of mental health.
