UPDATE: Haughey Ave death

Auckland City

Auckland City Police investigating the death of a 25-year-old man that occurred in Haughey Avenue, Mt Roskill, are still requesting people who were present at the address to come forward.

The deceased was one of a number of separate groups that met up at the Gemini Bar in Otahuhu and then travelled to 19 Haughey Avenue, sometime after 2.30am, to continue socialising.

In particular, Police would like to speak to three males - who have been described as Maori and Polynesian, aged 18 to 25 years - who spent time assisting the young man and putting him into the recovery position.

“These three stayed with the young man and continued to assist him after others had left the address, and I am confident that they will be able to help us piece together what has occurred,” says Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe.

“This group will know who they are and we need their help.”

“We are also trying to identify the occupants of a Grey Audi 4 door sedan, described as having a rounded shaped body, who left the address shortly before Police arrived."

If anyone can assist they are asked to call 09 3026 557. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
