Women’s 10km Record Holder Murdered

By Ana Chauhan, Chief Editor, The Pawprint

Agnes Tirop, Kenyan world record holder, has been found stabbed to death in her home in the Western town of Iten. 

Tirop set the record for a women’s only 10km race in Germany last month. 

Police have now launched a criminal investigation, with her husband now missing. He is currently being treated as a suspect in the case. 

Tom Makori, head of police in the area, said, “When [police] got in the house, they found Tirop on the bed and there was a pool of blood on the floor”. 

“They saw she had been stabbed in the neck, which led us to believe it was a knife wound, and we believe that is what caused her death”. 

Police officials are still investigating the motive and who was behind Tirop’s murder.
