US and Kenyan authorities have launched a manhunt for the killer of a Kenyan-American woman found dead at the Boston Logan International Airport in Massachusetts.
Police said that they found the brutally wounded body of Margaret Mbitu, 31, in the passenger seat of a car parked at the airport.
The primary suspect is Ms Mbitu’s partner, Kevin Kangethe, who is believed to have fled to Kenya after abandoning her body at the airport.
Ms Mbitu’s mother told the Boston 25 News channel that she had been attempting to end her relationship with Mr Kangethe.
Ms Mbitu had been last seen alive when she left her workplace on Monday night.
She left her job at a firm, BAMSI in Halifax. The company said Mbitu was a nurse who worked in their group homes for more than ten years, helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“She was warm, caring, and loved by everyone she worked with, both staff and the people she cared for in our group homes. As an agency, we are in mourning over the loss of such an amazing young (woman),” executive vice president Ulea Grace Lago said in a statement.
