Police continue investigation into Wainuiomata homicide

"Police continue investigation into Wainuiomata homicide (includes statement from family)"

To be attributed to Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Sears:

A large team of detectives and experts continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of Paul TeHiko in Wainuiomata on 7 March.

The public response to date has been fantastic.
We have received a large amount of information and we are following up all information received.

We would still like to hear from anyone who may have information pertinent to the investigation, who has not yet spoken to Police.

We would particularly like to hear from anyone who was in the vicinity of Jack Vaughan Grove on the evening of Wednesday 7 March, and may have seen people or vehicles of interest to the investigation team.

We would also like to speak to anyone who may have been tramping or hunting in the Wainuiomata area that day.

Paul’s family has provided the following statement:

“We are deeply traumatised at this time and would like for people to respect our privacy.
All that we ask is that if you know anything, that you come forward and speak to the Police.”

If you can help, please contact us urgently at Lower Hutt Police Station on 04 560 2600.
Information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
