Police can now name the man killed in Luanda Drive, Ranui yesterday morning.

The victim has been formally identified as 23 year-old Joshua Wayne ROACH. Mr Roach lived in the house next to where his body was located.

Mr Roach's family are being supported by Victim Support.

Enquiries today have continued with the ongoing scene examination at Luanda Drive. Police have also been going door-to-door in the neighbouring area in order to gain information to continue building a picture of the circumstances that led to the incident.
