The witness has recorded a statement with the police regarding his knowledge of the incident.

Police have confirmed that they indeed found the witness' academic documents in a house where it is believed either Syombua or her two children were murdered. The documents included a resume and certificates.

The three victims are alleged to have been murdered in separate houses within the Laikipia Airbase where Syombua had gone to visit her estranged husband, Major Peter Mugure. 

The bodies of Shanice Maua (10) and Prince Michael (5 )were placed in an empty bathtub in one of the houses at the base. 

Syombua's body was, on the other hand, placed in a separate house.

Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor on Wednesday said that Syombua died as a result of injuries on her head and brain caused by a blunt object. 

Her children were strangled using a rope.

The bodies of the three which had been buried at Makaburini, Thingithu area were discovered approximately three weeks after they were reported missing.
