According to Nairobi Regional Police Commander Benjamin Nthumbi, when police arrived at Mitchell’s hotel room, the door was locked from the inside.

An inquiry has been launched into the murder of BBC journalist Kate Mitchell, whose corpse was found in her Nairobi hotel room on Friday.

The journalist was allocated to the BBC Media Action Ethiopian office, and it is said that he has lately returned to the country.

According to investigators, the journalist may have been strangled to death by a guy she had been with earlier at the hotel after reportedly getting into a fight with him.

When the situation deteriorated, Mitchell is said to have raised the alarm. She was strangled before she could obtain any medical attention or assistance.

According to Nairobi Regional Police Commander Benjamin Nthumbi, when police arrived at Mitchell’s hotel room, the door was locked from the inside.

She had been found dead inside the room, and they had discovered pieces of a shattered window on the floor.

“When the investigators looked through the window, they saw a man’s corpse lying on the ground. Eventually, he was recognized as the guy Mitchell had been seen with earlier in the day “Nthumbi expressed himself.

“The individual had leapt from the eighth story of the hotel via the window of his room,” Mr Nthumbi said.

Mitchell’s cause of death is still under investigation, according to Commander Thumbi.

An internal communication message to BBC personnel in Nairobi, Kenya, states the circumstances of her death are still unknown.

“We are collaborating with the United Kingdom High Commission in Nairobi and the Kenyan authorities… There is no evidence that her death was related to her job or to the BBC,” according to a message sent to workers.

Mitchell also worked in Zambia and South Sudan before coming to Ethiopia.
