Photos From The Burial Event Of Murdered Kenyan Athlete, Agnes Jebet Tirop

Agnes Jebet Tirop was a young woman who had her life going well before it all ended tragically on the 13th of October 2021. She was a 25 years old Kenya athlete who was doing well in her career before death took all that away from her. Reports had it that Tirop's body was found on the 13th of October in her home in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet county, with multiple stab wounds in her neck and abdomen.

What the authorities believed might have happened that led to Tirop's death.

During the evacuation of the deceased from the crime scene, the officers also found out that the window glass of Tirop's car was shattered and this projected the possible case of domestic altercation in Tirop's death. 

Deceased's husband in trouble.

The first and only suspect the police have detained in regard to Tirop's death is her husband, Ibrahim Rotich. According to reports, Ibrahim called his family crying and asking for God's forgiveness for something he had done hours before Tirop's body was found in her home. 

The authorities started searching for Ibrahim who wanted to flee the country in his getaway vehicle but rammed into a truck near Mombasa. He was arrested and currently being questioned on the murder case. It is believed that the truth behind Tirop's death will be revealed as investigation continues.

Tirop laid to rest.

The young athlete was finally laid to rest after her burial service was held at Kapnyemisa Primary School in Nandi County on October 23, 2021. She was laid to rest in Mosoriot, Nandi County, Kenya. Check out photos from her burial ceremony below. 

We pray that her soul rests in perfect peace.
