Central Leader - - News -

The body of a woman found in her West­ern Springs home has been iden­ti­fied by po­lice as Nut­ti­dar Vaikaew, a 48year-old Thai woman.

Auck­land po­lice com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Noreen He­garty says po­lice are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing and the scene ex­am­i­na­tion was ex­pected to be fin­ished last Fri­day.

The woman is thought to have been at the War­wick St ad­dress for a month be­fore be­ing dis­cov­ered by po­lice.

“It’s clear from our pre­lim­i­nary eval­u­a­tion of the scene that the woman has been dead for some weeks and we’d like to be able to get some clar­ity around when she was last seen alive and by whom,” says de­tec­tive in­spec­tor Scott Beard.

A 47-year-old com­puter pro­gram­mer is due to ap­pear in court to­day charged with as­sault.
