Update on Albany homicide investigation

1 min read

Please attribute to Detective Inspector Aaron Proctor, Waitematā CIB:

Police have charged a man as part of the homicide investigation launched in Albany this morning.

A 31-year-old man has been charged with murder and is due to appear in the North Shore District Court this afternoon.

At this stage formal identification and next of kin notifications have not yet been completed, so Police are unable to release the victim's name at this time.

A post mortem examination is expected to be carried out tomorrow.

Police expect to complete the scene examination on Vinewood Drive later today and we would like to reassure the wider Albany community that Police are not currently seeking anyone else in connection with this investigation.

Police are limited in further comment as the matter is now before the Court.
