KQ stowaway could be airport employee

By Mercy Imali

Suspicion is rife that the man whose body fell off a plane could be an airport employee. Investigators are using fingerprints of the unknown male victim sent from London in a bid to identify him.  The plane was flying from Nairobi to Heathrow when a body fell into the garden in south London’s Clapham suburb on Sunday.

The body fell a metre away from a resident who had been sunbathing in the garden in south London’s Clapham suburb.

At the same time, a review of all CCTV coverage on flight KQ100 over the 24 hours before departure is ongoing with all staff who came into contact with the plane also being questioned.

A post-mortem examination would be carried out though the death was not being treated as suspicious, UK police said.

Kenya Airports Authority said, “We wish to reiterate that safety and security is our priority and the Multi-agency Security Committee will ensure that all our processes and procedures are adhered to.”
