State Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney's office say they are working with Kenyan authorities to find and arrest a man who is now charged with the murder of a woman whose body was found last night in Logan Airport's Central Parking.
State Police found the body of Margaret Mbitu, 31, of Whitman, around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday - two days after her family had reported her missing.
"Evidence indicates that she was the victim of a homicide," the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports
State Police obtained a warrant charging Kevin Kangethe, 40, of Lowell, with her murder - but Kangethe had already flown out of the country, the DA's office says, adding:
The investigation indicates that Kangethe and Ms. Mbitu knew each other and that the homicide was not a random act. There is no threat to the public or to Logan Airport travelers.
There are no direct flights from Boston to Nairobi, but several airlines offer connecting flights.
