The locals who discovered the body off the road, 10 kilometres from Mai Mahiu town, suspect that the body was dropped by a speeding car.

One of the witnesses told police that blood was still sipping from the fresh wounds and that the body as found naked by the roadside.

The witness also confirmed that the deceased was not from the area and that he may have been dumped at the scene.
