The woman was identified as Mueboi Mattae, of Omkoy’s Nakian sub-district. Her age was unclear, as her ID card mistakenly said that she was born in 1857.

Witnesses said Mueboi was a heavy drinker, and had been seen walking along the road next to the stream before her death. The body was taken to a hospital for an autopsy.
