Death – Obituary : US Embassy official’s body found hanging in Nairobi hotel – Cause Of Death
A body of a senior officer at the US Embassy in Nairobi was found Wednesday in his hotel room in what Kenyan officials believe to be a suicide, according to a report.
Police and witnesses said the body of the unidentified officer was found in the hotel near the Village Market after he failed to report to work, the Star reported.
Witnesses said he apparently used a belt, according to the local outlet.
“The body was found hanging near the room window. He seemed to have died long before security arrived there,” a police officer who was at the scene told the paper.
A suicide note found near the bed will be investigated.
Embassy officials checked on him after he failed to show up for work to relieve a colleague and didn’t answer his cellphone, according to the Star.
“We can confirm the death of a US government employee. US Embassy Nairobi extends its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased,” an embassy rep said.
The US State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Post.
