Nelson Mail - - NEWS -

Po­lice are still work­ing to de­ter­mine the cir­cum­stances of the death of a man in his 50s, found in the Motueka es­tu­ary on Wed­nes­day. De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Craig John­ston, of Nel­son Bays po­lice, said a post­mortem would be car­ried out to­day. He said po­lice be­lieved they knew the iden­tity of the man and were work­ing to con­tact his next-of-kin be­fore a name was re­leased. At this stage the death didn’t ap­pear to be sus­pi­cious, but there were some "un­ex­plained" el­e­ments and more in­for­ma­tion would be known af­ter the post­mortem had been com­pleted.
