Media Release from North Shore Police Death of 17 year old boy
North Shore Police confirm that they are investigating the death of a 17 year old Takapuna youth.
The death occurred just over a week ago. The Coroner's Act 2006 prevents details from being released by police, however I appreciate that information with a degree of public concern has already been 'outed' following media reports today and I assure the North Shore community that I will be keeping an eye on developments, I have assigned a small team of very experienced investigators to the case. Police are reminding media of the legal restrictions placed on them under section 71 of the Coroner's Act.
