The body of a Dutch national who was brutally murdered in Nyali, Mombasa County was recovered on Tuesday inside a septic tank.
Jacobus Van Der Goes, 77, went missing in January. His remains were found by police tucked away in a mattress and hidden inside a septic tank at his Nyali home.
Investigating police officers said murder weapons used in the attack were also retrieved from the tank among them a club and a hammer.
Mr Jacobus, who had retired from working for the Holland Government, lived with his gardener at his Nyali house where he was hacked to death on January 5, 2016.
The gardener was arrested as a prime suspect after it emerged that he had used the deceased’s ATM card to withdraw money from Equity Bank in Mombasa and Kericho.
He was convicted to serve a two-and-half-year jail term at Shimo la Tewa maximum prison.
Police also recovered Mr Goes vehicle in Mombasa town after they nabbed two other suspects who reportedly led them to the car.
The Star reports that police believe the gardener murdered his employer to acquire his wealth including the palatial home, vehicle, cash and other valuables.
