According to Diaspora messenger, Geoffrey Chepkwony from Bomet was found dead on August 29,2020 in Texas.

The Houston Police Department said they had received a report from witnesses of a body that was floating in Buffalo Bayou.



Its team responded to the scene to recover the body and realised that there was no signs of trauma. There was no identification in his possession making it hard for the detectives to know who he was.

His former roommate Sam Makaya said the deceased was suffering from mental problems and was on medications.



The medical examiners office wanted to know from Sam if there are any plans to collect the body otherwise if not collected they will dispose it, the diaspora reported.
