Rarieda Sub-County Police Commander Patrick Lumumba while confirming the incident said the woman was reported missing on July 10,2021 by her husband.
"Her husband, Malon Onyango, 34, lodged a complaint for a missing person report on July 10,2021. She was a nurse based at a private clinic in Masala centre. We are yet to establish the root cause of her death," Patrick said.
The deceased identified as Millicent Onyango, 25, was married to Malon Onyango, and were blessed with two children all girls.
