Massachusetts State Police: Missing woman found deceased, arrest warrant obtained for suspect in her murder



The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and the Massachusetts State Police announce that an arrest warrant has been obtained for a Lowell man suspected of killing a Whitman woman whose body was located last night in a garage at Logan Airport. The victim had been reported missing by her family on Monday and was the subject of a missing person investigation.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Massachusetts State Troopers assigned to the Logan Airport Barracks located a vehicle occupied by a deceased adult female in the Central Parking garage at Logan Airport. A subsequent investigation by the State Police Detective Unit for Suffolk County and State Police Troop F Detectives confirmed that the victim was the missing Whitman woman, 31-year-old Margaret Mbitu. Evidence indicates that she was the victim of a homicide.

The investigation identified the suspect as Kevin Kangethe, 40, of Lowell and determined that he had boarded a flight to Kenya. State Police Detectives obtained a warrant charging Kangethe with Mbitu’s homicide and are working with Kenyan authorities to locate Kangethe.

The investigation into the facts and circumstances of the homicide are ongoing. The investigation indicates that Kangethe and Mbitu knew each other, and that the homicide was not a random act.
