A business journalist working with the Standard Group was found murdered and his body was dumped on the roadside along Kangundo Road, Nairobi.
The body of Moses Okiror Omusolo, 35 was Thursday morning found in a ditch with a deep cut on the head.
Police said they suspect he was killed elsewhere and the body dumped at the site.
Police said they found the body lying on the roadside opposite Superloaf Company.
Omusolo who reported on business had a deep cut on the right side of the head with oozing blood.
A black backpack recovered next to the body revealed personal documents, which identified him.
Police said they are yet to know the motive of the murder and possible killers.
Omusolo had been living in the Umoja area, which is not far from the scene where the body was found.
It is not clear what happened to lead to his death but police said they are investigating a murder incident.
His colleagues said he planned to wed next year in April.
Omusolo had also worked at the Nation Media Group before joining the Standard.
