A report of the autopsy conducted on Lawyer Assa Nyakundi’s son, Joseph Nyakundi, has revealed that he was shot from outside the car and not from the inside as had previously been reported.
The lawyer had previously stated that he had accidentally shot and killed his 29-year-old son whilst trying to holster his firearm while in the car.
According to government pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor, Joseph’s cause of death was chest injuries and haemorrhage due to a gunshot fired from a low velocity firearm.
“The shot projection from the chest exiting at the back suggested that whoever shot him was standing outside the rear right back door of motor vehicle KCE 753B Toyota Axio which belongs to the father of the deceased. The angle of projection could be ninety degrees, suggesting there was a confrontation,” reads part of the report.
The autopsy was conducted in the presence of the homicide team, government chemists, ballistic experts, forensic analysts from the DCI and Lawyer Cliff Ombeta.
Ballistic experts and the homicide team are now set to analyze the suspect’s vehicle further before making their final reports as investigations continue.
On Tuesday, police found a pistol, a shotgun and 471 rounds of ammunition inside Mr. Assa Nyakundi’s master bedroom.
Following a ballistic examination on the lawyer’s Toyota Axio, one spent cartridge was found under the mat of the front passenger seat and a bullet head of the same kind was found inside the car’s trunk.
A bullet hole and blood stains were also found on the car’s back seat. Forensic experts then dusted the car for fingerprints and took them for examination.
Investigators also made a clarification that Lawyer Nyakundi’s glock pistol which was recovered after the shooting incident was loaded with 13 and not 14 rounds of ammunition as had previously been reported.
