Operation Painter - Inquiry wishes to speak with clients

1 min read

The inquiry has developed a very good idea of Susan's movements and associations through out Friday 15 April until the early hours of the morning of Saturday 16 April, says Detective Senior Sergeant David Harvey.

"It is known she had contact with one male at 10pm on Friday night and with another male from midnight through to 1.30am on Saturday," he says. "The inquiry would like those individuals to come forward so we can discount their involvement in anything that has subsequently happened to Susan."

Those individuals can be assured says Detective Senior Sergeant Harvey, that Police will deal with their contacts with Susan in a confidential manner.

The inquiry is entering a consolidation phase says David Harvey.

"We're assessing information given to us by the public and from our own inquiries," he says.

"We're still hoping the dark skinned driver of a mid 1980's Honda Integra/ Prelude or Accord on Manchester Street in the early hours of Saturday 16 April, will contact us."

There has been reference to a rear spoiler on the vehicle and the inquiry team wishes to clarify that this could be loosely described as a moulded spoiler on the boot, like a raised moulding.

"We continue to ask for people who are aware of vehicles of this description and being driven by persons as described to come forward," asks David Harvey.

Anyone wishing to contact Operation Painter inquiry team should phone 03 363 7620 or Christchurch Central Police.
