Kenyan-born Bahraini athlete, Damaris Muthee Mutua, found dead in her house in Iten

A Kenyan-born Bahraini athlete, Damaris Muthee Mutua, has been found dead in a town in the east African country’s west and the runner’s Ethiopian boyfriend is a suspect in her killing, police said on Tuesday. 


Iten, where both murders occurred, has a popular training base for long distance runners. The two murders have shone a spotlight on violence against women in the east African country.

“The body has been taken to a nearby hospital mortuary,” Makori said.

Police was looking for Mutua’s boyfriend, Eskinder Hailemaryam Folie, who had allegedly confessed to the killing, he said. He had been training at the same facility and has since fled Kenya, according to police.

“The suspect called a friend whom they were training together and informed him that he has killed a girlfriend and the body was in the house,” Makori said.

It's not clear when she was murdered, but it likely happened either late Saturday or early Sunday, as police found her decomposing body in the house, Makori said.

Makori added that police were looking for her boyfriend, who appears to have fled the country.

Mutua's body has been taken to the nearby hospital mortuary.

She won two bronze medals at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore and the East African Junior Athletics Championships, a track and field competition in Khartoum, before she became a Bahraini national.
