No foul play in F± death

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -


A MAN whose body parts were found strewn along a NSW cen­tral coast mo­tor­way did not die from ‘‘ foul play’’.

Po­lice now be­lieve the man was the vic­tim of a hit-and-run on the busy F3 at Kar­i­ong some time on Tues­day.

A mo­torist alerted po­lice af­ter run­ning over some of the body parts in one of the north­bound lanes.

Of­fi­cers have con­tin­ued to fol­low up leads from the pub­lic, in­clud­ing a re­port from a woman who said she saw a ma­roon sedan swerve to miss an ob­ject near the Gos­ford exit.

‘‘ The woman has told po­lice she heard that ve­hi­cle – pos­si­bly a Holden Com­modore or Ford Fal­con – hit the ob­ject be­fore see­ing a semi­trailer trav­el­ling be­hind her swerve to miss the same ob­ject,’’ po­lice said.

The sedan was last seen trav­el­ling along the Pa­cific High­way be­fore turn­ing right onto Woy Woy Road at Kar­i­ong.

‘‘ We have been ex­plor­ing a num­ber of the­o­ries but all of the ev­i­dence avail­able to us at this stage sug­gests the de­ceased was the vic­tim of a failto-stop col­li­sion.’’
