KRA Lawyer Jared Ratemo was tortured, injected with an unknown substance and strangled before he died.
A post-mortem on Mr Ratemo’s body revealed that he suffered several injuries inflicted by a blunt object on his head, face and other parts of the body.
The report also shows that the lawyer’s genitals were crushed and his neck had injuries, suggesting that he was strangled.
