Update - Grace Millane investigation - Dec 10

"Update - Grace Millane investigation"

To be attributed to Detective Inspector Scott Beard, Auckland City Police

The enquiry team working on the murder of English tourist Grace Millane have continued investigations throughout the day.

The scene examination on Scenic Drive is ongoing and will continue tomorrow.

The 0800 number has received a number of calls from people with information about the 2016 red Toyota Corolla hatchback.

Police would like to hear from anyone who travelled along Scenic Drive on Monday 3 December, between 6am and 9.30am.

The vehicle was rented for a 24-hour period and was returned to central Auckland rental car company on Monday 3 December at lunchtime.

The post-mortem examination has been carried out today.

We will not be releasing the results of this examination.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who walked along Scenic Drive, or who parked in the Waitakere Dam carpark during this time.

We have been approached by a number of people who would like to hold vigils for Grace.

The Millane family are very grateful for the kind thoughts and give their blessing to these vigils, but have respectfully declined to attend.

They have declined to make any further public comment at the moment and ask for continued privacy.

Finally, the accused has appeared in court.

The court has granted him interim name suppression.

We would like to remind the public that whilst we appreciate the public feeling around this case, it is an offence to breach a court order such as a name suppression, and this includes naming someone who has name suppression on social media.
