e alive he led a decent life. .

Family members and friends who were overcome by emotions clang on Obegi's casket, wailing and lamenting why he had been murdered in such a cruel manner.

"You cannot understand what has not befell you. What you are hearing is not true. Frank was a very good person, he was not sick, he died in a most painful manner," said an aunt, Veronica Kerubo.

Ms Kerubo said that it is unfortunate that when children try to better themselves, "the devil gets in between and brings them down."

Ms Kerubo, who lives in Nairobi and occasionally supported Obegi financially denied that they were rich and led a flashy lifestyle.

"You can see for yourselves, we are poor and struggling in life," she said.

Obegi's body was among three others which were on Sunday, June 19, discovered in Kijabe Forest.

The bodies of ElijahOmeka  and Mose Nyachae were discovered alongside Obegi's while that of Fred Obare Mokaya was found in Magadi, Kajiao county.

It remains unclear what led to the deaths.
