Name release - Glen Eden death

Waitemata

To be attributed to Detective Senior Sergeant Kim Libby, Waitemata Police

Police can now release the name of the man found deceased at a Glen Eden property on Saturday afternoon.

He was 39 year-old Dennis Mau’u.

The enquiry into Mr Mau’s death is ongoing however at this point Police do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances.

A woman who was in the same room as Mr Mau’u and was taken to hospital in a serious condition is now recovering.

One strong line of enquiry is that the pair have become unwell after taking a substance.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out this morning, but Police are now waiting for toxicology results  to provide further details. These results are not expected for several weeks.
