Police have finally found the body of missing Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen in a septic tank within his compound in Kitisuru, Nairobi. The late Cohen’s body was found on Friday afternoon dumped in a tank in the compound.

Mr. Cohen, 71-year-old tours and travel expert was at the time of his disappearance pursuing a divorce case with his estranged wife Sarah Wairimu Kamotho. He had also filed an assault case he had filed against her.

Cohen vanished between July 19 and 20 and Ms Kamotho had told detectives that her husband had left for Thailand.

Initially, his workers had told police that Mr Cohen left his high-security compound, where CCTV cameras point to the drive-way, on the afternoon of July 20 at around 2pm. They claimed that he only carried a briefcase and was driven off in a white car.

Mr Cohen’s Mercedes Benz had remained parked in the compound and he had not contacted his relatives ever since.

His socialite wife had told Mr Cohen’s friends that the established golf tournament organiser had left for Thailand to seek for treatment but detectives say that there is no evidence from immigration department that the missing tycoon had left the country.

Detectives in Nairocbi were intrigued by the disappearance since it  happened shortly after two letters, dated July 20, 2019, that purported to withdraw both the divorce and assault case were sent to Mr Cohen’s lawyers; Judy Thongori for the divorce case and Dunstan Omari in the assault case. The letter to Ms Thongori was stamped as received on July 24.
