Police in Counties Manukau are investigating the murder of 39 year old father of five, Siaosi Tulua who was killed in his own home on Saturday 20th April (Easter weekend).

At about 10pm, Siaosi was at home on Darnell Crescent with his partner and young child when loud voices were heard before a single gunshot. A number of people, including Siaosi’s partner, called 111 and Police attended and rendered first aid but unfortunately Siaosi died at the scene.

This was a brutal murder of an unarmed man in his own home. Siaosi was a much-loved family man and his whanau are devastated by what happened. Police are desperate to give them some answers.

Police know that there was some drug activity at this address in the months leading up to the murder but their priority is the homicide, not the drug offending, and they would like to speak to people who have visited this address over Easter weekend and in particular on the day of the homicide as they may have seen something or may have vital information that could assist the investigation. Police want to reassure these people that their calls will be treated in confidence.

On two separate occasions that evening, there were two vehicles parked outside the address and Police would like to hear from the occupants of those vehicles or from people who saw those vehicles that evening.

Police believe there may be more than one person involved in Siaosi’s murder and they may have gone home and acted suspiciously and spoken about it and Police want to hear from anyone who may have information that can assist them.

If you know anything that can help Police bring Siaosi’s whanau some closure, please contact Counties Manukau Police and remember that your calls will be treated in confidence.
