Kenya Student Kills Five Members of His Family, Says He Was Inspired By British Sitcom

A 22-year-old university student, Simon Warunge, has confessed to killing his parents and three more members of his family – including – in Kiambu County, Central Kenya.

Warunge, according to local reports, claimed he was influenced by the British comedy-drama spy thriller television series – Killing Eve.

Local media reports said the college undergrad killed his father, mother, two brothers and a worker with a kitchen knife on Tuesday.

His father had 34 stab wounds. He had reportedly broken his leg when he attempted to flee the massacre by jumping from the balcony of a storey building.

He said he had also searched online how to commit the murder the same way the main character in the movie psychopathic assassin Villanelle does without a trace.

“He says he searched the whole script online and he intended to conceal his tracks by even killing the remaining sisters,” said an investigator aware of the probe.

Lawrence told police that his parents were “satanic and killers” hence deserved to die.

Lawrence, 23, and an IT student at a local university, and his girlfriend Sarah Muthoni, were arrested over the incident and appeared in court on Monday.

After his arrest, investigators recovered the killer’s weapon – a kitchen knife, pieces of clothes, shoes, and a piece of paper as exhibits from a pit latrine where he had disposed them.

The university student claimed he committed the murder alone, but police are at a loss how he killed the five without resistance last Tuesday. Investigators say they believe there are other accomplices to the crime.

Police think at least five people are involved in the murder of Nicholas Njoroge Warunge, his wife Annie, sons Christian and Maxwell and a construction worker James Kinyanjui.

Plans are in progress to conduct an autopsy on the bodies on Monday to establish the victims’ cause of death.
