Dunedin Homicide, Update 3

Dunedin Police expect over the next couple of days to complete a scene examination at the St Leonard's address where two children and a man were found dead yesterday evening (15 January).

Police today together with ESR, who arrived from Christchurch this morning, spent the day conducting a scene examination at the address.

Police staff also canvassed the local neighbourhood to gather information about the night's events.

It was expected the bodies of the man and two children would be removed this evening and taken for a post-mortem examination.

Police will not yet release the name of the 51-year-old man as they wait to contact relatives overseas.

They can confirm that he is the estranged husband of the woman living at the address and that their relationship ended in May 2013.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
