Framingham Police: Death of Kenyan Man, 32, Not Suspicious

FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police found a Kenyan man, 32, dead in his apartment on Sunday, March 4.

Framingham Police Lt. Patricia Grigas said the death is “not suspicious.”

She said the death is “not drug-related,” either.

Victor Odhiambo Ang’awa was found unresponsive in his living room, when first responders arrived on the scene, according to multiple Kenyan newspapers.

He graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in business from Cambridge College.

He had been working as an analyst with Santander bank and was applying to MBA programs, according to Samrack Media.

Ang’awa was the firstborn of Professor Francis Ang’awa of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga University of Science and Technology and Pamela Angawa of Kenya. He leaves behind his brother Jack Ang’awa of Kenya and Dorothy J. Ochieng, a cousin, living in Westborough.

A Memorial-Thanksgiving-Fundraising Service is planned for him on March 11.

His remains will be repatriated to his final resting place in Bondo, Kenya.

“The landlord who lives in the same building told me that Victor had called him earlier in the morning to come and fix a heat issue in the apartment. He found Victor sitting on his couch and asked him how he was doing, to which Victor responded “I am Ok,” said Dr. Washingtone Ochieng, a Harvard University Scholar and brother-in-law to the late Ang’awa during a phone interview with Ajabu Africa News.

The landlord came back later to check on him and “found him lying on the floor dead. The landlord then called 911 emergency responders who upon arrival, tried in vain to resuscitate him,” said Dr. Ochieng to the African news agency.
