Taupo Times - - OUT & ABOUT - STUFF.CO.NZ

Po­lice have ar­rested four peo­ple in re­la­tion to the death of Scott Henry who was found shot dead in Kin­loch.

Henry, 48, was found dead by a fam­ily mem­ber at his Whanga­mata Rd prop­erty, on the out­skirts of Taupo, on July 20.

Two 25-year-old men and a 22-year-old man from Taupo have been charged with mur­der and ag­gra­vated rob­bery.

A 43-year-old Auck­land woman has also been charged with ag­gra­vated rob­bery.

The three men will ap­pear in Ro­torua Dis­trict Court, and the Auck­land woman will ap­pear at Manukau Dis­trict Court, on Thurs­day.

Po­lice con­ducted six searches in Taupo on Tues­day morn­ing, also ar­rest­ing a 35-year-old Taupo man on four metham­phetamine sup­ply charges.

Bay of Plenty de­tec­tive John Wilson said po­lice had worked hard to find those re­spon­si­ble for Henry’s death.

Af­ter Henry was shot on a Thurs­day evening, his 38-year-old part­ner was un­ac­counted for.

She was lo­cated at a nearby prop­erty the fol­low­ing Fri­day af­ter­noon, safe and un­in­jured.
