Homicide detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) upon confession by the suspect visited several crime scenes in Kajiado, Kiambu, Machakos and Bungoma where they recovered bodies of slain minors.
Sleuths also launched investigations against several suspects belived to have aided Wanjala in the gruesome killings.
The suspect was arrested after police tracked down his mobile phone in Kitengela Township on July 13 – said to have been used to solicit for ransom money after abducting two children in Majengo area of Nairobi County.
A nationwide search has been kicked off with police now in pursuit of the suspected serial killer.
