The Kuria Family Murders

The Kuria Family

On the morning of August 1, 2007, a phone call to Jane Kuria’s home goes unanswered. The single mother of three hasn’t been heard from in over 24 hours. Deeply worried, Jane’s sister-in-law, Pauline, and her niece, Diana, go to check on the family. What they find are four separate crime scenes, equally horrific and gruesome. Jane and her two teen daughters, Isabella and Annabelle, have been bludgeoned to death. Jane’s son and nephew have been beaten unconscious, and are rushed to the hospital, clinging to life. No murder weapon or other usable DNA has been left behind, but one acquaintance of Jane’s emerges as a “person of interest.” The boys eventually recover but have no memory of their assault. Diana, who continues to be haunted by her family’s death and the horrors within that house, is hoping for answers. Who committed this violent assault against Jane and her children and why?
