Belmont Car Fire - Update

Wellington

Police enquiries continue at the scene of a fatal vehicle fire earlier this morning in Belmont.

 

We believe we know the identity of the victim and formally confirming this will be a priority over the coming days. 

 

However, due to the nature of the investigation and our enquiries to date, Police strongly urge media to refrain from speculating on the identity of the victim or the circumstances leading up to the death.

 

Police will not be releasing any further information ahead of pathologist and post mortem enquiries which are likely to be completed early next week.
