The two girls lived less than 300 meters away from each other.

On May 21st, 11-year-old Grace Njeri had just returned home from an errand when she suddenly vanished. Her dismembered body was found a whole month later. Her hands were missing.

The fourth girl was never identified. But because her body was found in the same part of Uasin Gishu, she and the three other girls may all be victims of the same killer.

Mustaffa Idd killed Emma Wanyotta while he was still out on bail for yet another murder, that of a woman from Kapkoi, Kiminini in July 25, 2017.

He had deposited a title deed in lieu of a Sh 1 million bond to get out of jail.
