Police are still in search of suspects responsible for the death of a 38-year-old man whose body was found in his car, earlier this month.

Sergeant Zita Norman, Athlone police spokesperson, says a case of murder has been opened for investigation but no arrest has been made.

Norman explains that police were alerted to an incident where a man lost control of his vehicle in Eland Street, Kewtown, on Thursday 19 July.

Upon police arrival shortly after the accident, the driver had already succumbed to his injuries.
