Senior US Embassy official found dead in Nairobi hotel


A senior official of the United States Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, was found dead in his hotel room in what is believed to be a suicide act.

The unidentified officer’s body was found hanging in the room hours after he failed to report to work on Wednesday, Local Star newspaper reported.

“The body was found hanging near the room window. He seemed to have died long before security arrived there,” the newspaper quoted a police source.

A suicide note was also found near the man’s bed, and police will investigate it to determine whether he authored it, it added.

The body was transferred to a mortuary in Nairobi as authorities launched a probe into the incident.
