Op Brad; Waihi Beach homicide, release 6

Op Brad; Waihi Beach homicide, release 6

As they review hundreds of images supplied by the public, Police say this assistance is enabling them to build an accurate picture of what happened in Waihi Beach early on New Years Day shortly before a man was fatally stabbed.

Waikato District Crime Manager, Detective Chris Page, said as Operation Brad, the investigation into the murder of 64-year-old Murray WILKINSON, heads into its eighth day the events leading up to the fatal attack are becoming clearer.

"We knew there were a lot of people, predominantly intoxicated youths, in and around the area where the attack took place and we have confirmed there were several incidents of assaults and disorder.

"What the response to appeals for information and images has done however, is enable us to identify people, places and times as we piece together the various parts of the jigsaw of our investigation."

Mr Page said about 30 Police staff from across the Waikato, Central and Upper North Island continue to work on the case as part of what Police refer to as a 'whole of policing' response.

While Police have a wealth of statements and images to review Mr Page said this didn't mean they weren't after more and encouraged people who have not already spoken to the enquiry team to make contact with them.

The Operation Brad enquiry team can be found at the Waihi Beach and Waihi Police stations or contacted via the enquiry crimeline; 0800 OP BRAD (0800 672723).

Alternatively information can be left anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Kim Regime

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US had a very clear objective and eventually offered a quid pro quo of the removal of some of its own missiles from Turkey. This time, there’s no clarity about what the US is seeking, or offering.

It hasn’t helped that the US and the global media consistently agree on calling North Korea and its leadership “crazy” and “irrational” and urging it to “come to its senses”. When you treat your opponent as being beyond reason, it gets hard to comprehend what their strategy is, let alone work out the terms of a viable compromise. More>>
