Probe into death

Central Leader - - News -

Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing the sus­pi­cious death of a man at a Hills­bor­ough house say they are run­ning a homi­cide in­quiry.

Damien Loder Allen, 33, was found dead at the prop­erty on Septem­ber 24 and po­lice say he died from a head in­jury.

Po­lice spokes­woman Noreen He­garty says the scene has been ex­ten­sively ex­am­ined by ESR sci­en­tists and po­lice staff in the weeks af­ter Mr Allen’s death in an at­tempt to re­con­struct what hap­pened.

Tests used to de­ter­mine whether blood was present at the scene came up with ar­eas of in­ter­est.

Po­lice are wait­ing on fur­ther anal­y­sis be­fore mak­ing any more com­ment.

“This man has died as a re­sult of an im­pact to the head,” says de­tec­tive in­spec­tor Scott Beard.

“How that hap­pened and who did it are the fo­cus of this in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call the Auck­land po­lice on 302-6400.
