International manhunt underway for murder suspect

BOSTON, MA – A chilling murder case has unfolded at Boston’s Logan International Airport, where the body of a woman was discovered in a parked car. Margaret Mbitu, 31, had been reported missing by her family just two days prior to the grim discovery on Wednesday.

The suspect, identified as 40-year-old Kevin Kangethe, is believed to have fled to Kenya. The police have stated that Mbitu and Kangethe knew each other, suggesting the murder was not a random act.

Surveillance footage from the airport, provided by the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, shows Kangethe at the airport on November 1, 2023. This crucial piece of evidence has helped authorities trace Kangethe’s movements and his subsequent departure from the U.S.

The discovery of Mbitu’s body was made by Massachusetts State Troopers assigned to the airport. “A vehicle occupied by a deceased adult female was located in the Central Parking garage at Logan Airport around 6:30 PM on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023,” read the official statement. Further investigations confirmed the identity of the victim and pointed towards homicide.

Efforts are now underway to locate Kangethe, with Massachusetts State Police Detectives working in conjunction with Kenyan authorities. An arrest warrant has been issued for Kangethe. “We are committed to bringing him to justice and ensuring that Margaret Mbitu’s tragic death does not go unpunished,” stated Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden.

Officials have assured the public and travelers at Logan Airport that there is no immediate threat. The investigation continues and more information will be released as it becomes available.
