Edgar Tony, the student who topped the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) countrywide in 2012 has been found dead. Tony’s body was found mutilated and dumped alongside the road in Homa Bay.
According to his step-brother, the body of the deceased was discovered along the road with deep cut wounds on the head and several other parts of the body hence raising suspicion on the cause of his death.
The family has intimated that they suspect foul play in their kin’s murder.
“I received the communication from his immediate brother who told me that Tony had passed away. He had suffered deep wounds in the head and the body. The bruises were so deep but we are not yet aware whether the injuries were inflicted by assailants or after an accident. His family is currently with the body at Jaramogi Referral Hospital,” Odongo Odol, the deceased’s stepbrother said.
In 2012, Tony from Maseno High School emerged as the top candidate with a mean Grade A of 89.86 points. He joined Yale University and studied Electrical Engineering.
Last year, he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He had just come back home to spend time with family.
