The team of pathologists established that the victim got a fracture of the right ankle joint, around the end of July 2021. They say it was a simple fracture that was being managed at RUBY Medical Centre, by an Orthopedic Surgeon. Physicians put a POP cast at the victim’s leg and managed him as an outpatient, with regular reviews. They further encouraged him to do mild exercises while at home.

It was further established that the pain in the right leg started increasing in the last 2-3days, and the victim notified his Orthopedic Surgeon, who scheduled an appointment for him on 21.08.2021, at around 8.30am -900am. Police says that at around 7:54, the victim called the Orthopedic Surgeon to reconfirm their appointment. ”It is unfortunate, that shortly after, the victim started facing breathing problems and called his personal Doctor, Dr. Ben Khiingi, who rushed to the home but found the victim breathing his last and died.”

According to Police. during the autopsy, the pathologists opened the right lower leg, which got injured and found a very big blood clot, that had formed in one of the big blood vessels. They further opened his chest and found part of the blood clot had been carried into the lungs. As a result, both vessels in the lungs were blocked, thus leading to the shortage of breath and subsequent death. It was thus concluded as death due to natural causes.
