The pupil of Dudi Primary School is reported to have left home to untie their goats from the grazing field but went missing until late in the evening when his lifeless body was found dangling from the top of the tree.

According to the minor’s father, Michael Okech, Felix might have hanged himself after he found one goat dead in the grazing field under unclear circumstances. 

He said that out of fear, the boy removed a rope from the dead goat and used it to hang himself.

Rachuonyo East Sub-County Police Commander Justus Kucha who confirmed the incident said that the police have not established the reason why the minor decided to end his life. 

Police have now launched investigations into the matter and the boy’s body was moved to Rachuonyo South Sub County Hospital Mortuary for a post-mortem examination.
