Police investigate Scorching Bay death

Wellington Police are investigating the death of a man at his Scorching Bay home today.

Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Borrell, Wellington CIB, said family members found the body of a 69-year-old man in the garden of his Karaka Bay home about 9.20am.

"The circumstances of how the man died are as yet unclear," Detective Senior Sergeant Borrell said. "Police are talking with the man's family who are naturally distraught. They are also receiving help from Victim Support."

Police have utilised the services of the ESR and a pathologist at the address due to some unusual aspects surrounding this death. A Post Mortem will occur tomorrow morning and is expected to assist in clarifying these aspects by providing a clearer cause of death.

The man's name is Adrianus Johanus VLUG.
