Lawrence was reported missing days after the gruesome murder with authorities worried of his safety given the nature of the attack.
At the same time, questions rose as to why he went missing given the level of misunderstanding he had with his parents.
At the time of the murder, Lawrence lived at uncompleted building and could have been angered by the decision of parents to store building materials at his small room he was sleeping.
Investigations revealed that the murderers could have been close family members as there was no sign of breaking into the house.
Neighbours confirmed to have noticed nothing unusual on that day except a vehicle that was parked outside the house. DCI boss George Kinoti has promised to unravel the truth.
