A mob in western Kenya has killed a self-confessed serial killer who escaped from custody two days ago, police say.
Masten Wanjala, 20, was traced by villagers to a house in Bungoma town and beaten to death, they say.
Authorities had launched a massive manhunt for the fugitive who admitted to killing more than 10 young boys during a five-year period.
He also confessed to drugging them and in some cases drinking their blood.
He reportedly returned to the home of his parents who have disowned him and was subsequently strangled by neighbors who found out he was there, an eyewitness told Kenya’s Standard newspaper. END.
