His body was found on Satirday afternoon by Kenya Wildlife Service officers patrolling Lake Nankuru National Park.
Detectives who are awaiting a postmortem rxercise expected to be carried out today in an attempt to establish the cause of death said that his body was found inside his car.
The postmortem is expected to be carried out at Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital, according to Benson Mutie, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in Nakuru.
Detectives said that after visiting the scene, they found him locked inside his car with bottles of alcohol and two five 500ml bottles of an insecticide, one empty and the other three-quarters full.
