A Kenyan woman and her son were found dead in an apartment on Saturday morning in Gentofte, a municipality about 20 minutes from Copenhagen. Police suspect foul play but no suspect has been arrested so far.
Saturday morning police in North Zealand got a call from an apartment on Vangedevej in Gentofte after a woman and her son were found dead. The person on the phone was the woman’d husband and child’s father, who had walked in only to find the two bodies. The lady has been identified as Fridah Rashida and her son, Kwanza.
“We found a woman and a little boy. We had technicians and an on-the-spot forensic clinician to investigate what happened in the apartment,” investigator Brian Grayston of North Zealand Police said as reported by the Danish paper, BT.
The husband was questioned by the police upon their arrival at the scene, but he was later let go. He is currently not a suspect in the case.
Due to the sensitivity of the case, the police in their press statement could not comment further on the case. They are currently investigating.
This is not the first such case in the area, this year alone there has been three cases where parents in their rage killed their own children. In January a man in Ulstrup killed his two sons and two daughters before killing himself. In April, a man killed his three children and the children’s mother in Brønshøj, Copenhagen. The man has since been sent to a psychiatric hospital, just as a mother that killed her son in May.
