Public help sought in Huntly death inquiry

Public help sought in Huntly death inquiry

Police investigating the death of a Huntly man are hoping the public may provide some clues as to how he died.

Victor Tera Wilson, 35, died in Waikato Hospital on Monday night. Mr Wilson was at a party at a Harris St house on Saturday. He was taken to Waikato Hospital on Sunday by ambulance. Mr Wilson was also known as Victor Paul. He lived at the Harris St house.

Police were not called to the Harris St house at the weekend and did not know anything about Mr Wilson's injuries until they were notified of his death on Monday night.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Whitehead said police had been speaking to people who were at the house on Saturday, but it was possible other people in the wider community may have knowledge of what had happened there.

"Someone may have been walking past the house or may have seen or heard something going on there. It's important that we speak to as many people as possible to build up a picture of what took place there on Saturday and Saturday night," Mr Whitehead said.

Police will continue area inquiries today and a scene examination is likely to finish today. A post mortem was held yesterday and police are waiting on a pathologist's report.

Mr Whitehead said the inquiry was still being treated as a suspicious death at this stage.

"It is too early in the inquiry to be able to form any view on Mr Wilson's injuries or how he received them. The post mortem will provide useful information, but we still have a lot of investigative work to do before we can confirm anything surrounding Mr Wilson's death."

Police want to hear from anyone who may be able to assist, even if it is only something they may have heard. Anyone with information about Mr Wilson's death should contact Huntly police on 07 8287560.
