Police have dropped charges against a man over the death of a pedestrian on a rural road south of Hamilton.
The body of William Hoskins, 26, from Hastings, was found on Maychurch Road, along State Highway 1B, in January.
He had been attending a wedding nearby.
Police say an extensive investigation did not yield enough evidence to charge anyone with the death.
They say a man, 47, was charged with careless driving causing death, but that charge has now been dropped.
