Update - Grey Lynn name releases

Update - Grey Lynn name releases

Please attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Glenn Baldwin:

The investigation into a Grey Lynn address where two people were found deceased on Tuesday 6 March, 2018 is continuing.

The post mortem and formal identification process has now been completed for the man and woman who were found at the scene.

We are now in a position to release their names.

Police can confirm the woman was that of missing Auckland woman, 39-year-old Tania Ellwood.

A male who was also found deceased at the scene has been identified as 36-year-old Timothy Kerr Hamilton of Auckland.

The pair were known to each other and police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the matter.

Police would still like to hear from anyone who may have seen or had contact with Tania Ellwood or Timothy Kerr after 11am on Wednesday 28 February.

Police are investigating this matter and are still working to establish what has occurred at the address.

If you have any information that could help our investigation, please contact Avondale CIB on (09) 820 5700. Alternatively, information can also be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The matter will be referred to the coroner at the conclusion of the investigation and police are not in a position to comment further at this stage.

Both families have requested privacy from the media at this difficult time.

HiveMind: Fair Enough? How Should New Zealanders Be Taxed? - Have Your Say

Scoop and PEP invite you to share your issues, ideas and perspectives on the NZ tax system with other New Zealanders using Scoop’s HiveMind tool. This Tax HiveMind is intended to complement and feed into the review being run by the Government-appointed Tax Working Group (TWG), which is looking at the fairness, balance and structure of the tax system with a 10-year time horizon.

We at Scoop and PEP believe that an issue as important as the fairness of the tax regime should be open for discussion, debate and dialogue. Unfortunately, a written submission process just doesn’t encourage the kind of public exchange we think is necessary in a well-functioning democracy. More>>
