Top Kenyan runner Agnes Tirop killed, found with stab wounds
(AP) — Kenyan Olympic runner and two-time world championship medalist Agnes Tirop was found dead at her home Wednesday with stab wounds and her husband was missing and wanted for questioning, police said.
Elgeyo Marakwet County police chief Tom Makori said they were searching for Tirop’s husband after his family reported he had phoned them crying and asking for God’s forgiveness for something he had done.
“There are revelations which came from her husband’s family,” Makori said.
The 25-year-old Tirop was found dead at her home in Iten in western Kenya, a town renowned as a training base for distance runners.
