Kenyan police say they are investigating the murder of a three-time Ugandan Olympian in the 3000m steeplechase, whose body was found with stab wounds inside a car Sunday morning.

Moiben Police Commander Stephen Okal said the body of Benjamin Kiplagat was found in a car near Kimumu Secondary school along the Eldoret-Iten road_a six-hour drive west of Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi.

"This was murder but we do not know the motive for now,” he said.

The deceased was found in his brother’s car which he was driving, Okal said.

Kiplagat represented Uganda in three Olympic games and six world championships.

Kiplagat reached the semi-finals of the 2012 London Olympics in the 3,000m steeplechase. Athletics Kenya official Barnabas Korir mourned the death of the athlete.

"We urge the police to speed up investigations and bring to book his killers", said Korir.
