THE body of a teen who died from neck injuries has been found amid fears he had been there for days.
Two people have been arrested after the body of Najeebullah Nekzad, 19, was found on a country lane off the M62 in Scammonden, near Huddersfield, on Saturday morning.
West Yorkshire Police said they were treating the teen’s death as “unexplained” after the grim discovery was made near the old Nont Sarah’s Hotel about 11.10am on August 31.
A post mortem revealed that the man – thought to be from the Manchester area – died from neck injuries.
And cops believe the teen’s body had been in the parked car for a number of days.
Two men, aged 35 and 18 from Manchester, have been arrested and remain in custody.
Detective Superintendent Pat Twiggs from the Protective Services (Crime) team, said: “We are treating this man’s death as unexplained and I would appeal to anyone with information to contact police.
