The son of a British lord who died in custody of the Kenyan police, hours after being arrested for smoking cannabis, was killed by a blow to the head.
Alexander Monson was out with friends on Saturday in Dani, a town on the Kenyan coast, and was arrested after leaving a bar at around 2am.
A half-smoked joint and some pills were found on his person, according to reports - which his family have not denied.
Friends who saw him in jail said he was in good spirits, but soon he was dying on the floor of the police station.
The Telegraph reported that his father, Lord Monson had seen two independent pathologist reports which said the 28-year-old was killed by blunt trauma, not alcohol or drugs.
"The post-mortem reports are absolutely conclusive that Alexander died from a blow to the head, a blunt force trauma," Lord Monson told the Telegraph.
The Kenyan police reportedly confirmed Moson died from blunt force trauma, but said police officers were not involved.
Regardless the allegations will raise serious questions about the conduct of the Kenyan police, and the peer's family are now calling for a full inquiry.
Lord Monson called on the Foreign Office as well as the Kenyan authorities to investigate the circumstances of his son's death.
"If he had chosen to go into politics he could have been a John F Kennedy," his father said.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office told the Huffington Post:
"We are aware of the death of a British national, Alexander Monson, in Kenya, and we are providing consular assistance to his family at this difficult time."
