Please attribute to Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Kepal Richards, Counties Manukau CIB

Police investigating the murder of South Auckland man Siaosi Tulua are appealing to the public for sightings of a vehicle of interest in relation to his death.

The 39-year-old father of five was killed in his own home on Darnell Crescent, Clover Park, about 10pm Saturday April 20.

A homicide investigation was launched and a team of investigators have since identified a vehicle used the night of his murder.

Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Kepal Richards says the vehicle is a silver 2007 Mitsubishi Galant with distinctive damage to the left rear side and bumper.

“We know this vehicle and its occupants were involved in a number of serious crimes that evening, including the fatal shooting of Mr Tulua on Darnell Crescent,” he says.

“We want to speak to anyone who saw this vehicle that evening or anyone with any information about its occupants.

We know there are people who know who is responsible and we urge them to do the right thing and come forward to Police."

Anyone with information about this vehicle or its occupants is urged to contact Counties Manukau Police on (09) 261 1321 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Ellen Rykers on The Dig: Community Conservation – The Solution To The Biodiversity Crisis?

There are 62 biodiversity sanctuaries across 56,000 hectares, with around two-thirds of them community-led. There are citizen scientists counting birds in their backyards and landowners conserving habitat in 3,500 Queen Elizabeth II National Trust covenants.

It’s increasingly clear that a government agency alone cannot combat the biodiversity crisis successfully. These grass-roots initiatives are a growing resource in the conservation toolbox. More>>
