20-year-old Masten Milimo Wanjala was arrested by Kenyan police in July and confessed to 10/12 murders in Nairobi, Kajiado, Machakos, and Bungoma counties. It is feared that he's responsible for at least 14.
After his arrest he took police to ten crime scenes, re-enacted the killings, showed them a scrapbook he had made about the killings, and described how he had drank blood from at least one child.
He would drug the children before killing them, sometimes demanded ransoms from the families in the alleged 4/5 years that the murders span across.
Wanjala was caught after sending a text demanding ransom from a parent in July. It's believed he was known to several of his victims, likely through his job as a football coach. He was discovered missing when police were doing a roll call for prisoners due in court on October 13th as he was. He was due to face three murder charges.
He remains on the run.
