Please attribute to a Police spokesperson:
The family of Tania Ellwood who was found deceased at an address in Grey Lynn last week have asked Police to request that media stop attempting to contact them.
The family has already advised that they are not ready to speak to media, and that the ongoing attempts to contact them are causing additional distress at what is already a hugely traumatic time.
Tania’s funeral is being held over the ensuing days and family would like to request that media do not attend and also ask that media do not turn up to the family’s home address.
Tania’s family respectfully request that media give them the privacy and space they need, as they deal with their loss.
