In­quiry after woman found dead at home

Rotorua Daily Post - - Local News - Saman­tha Ol­ley

Po­lice are try­ing to es­tab­lish how a woman died at a home at Lake Ro­toma.

Of­fi­cers were called to a house on the east­ern shores of the lake about 12.30pm on Satur­day.

A po­lice spokes­woman said “some­one called say­ing they hadn’t seen her [the woman] since Christ­mas. There’s no in­di­ca­tion it’s sus­pi­cious. How­ever, the for­mal­i­ties are on­go­ing.”

The Ro­torua Daily Post went to the prop­erty on State High­way 30 on Satur­day af­ter­noon. There were po­lice of­fi­cers in white suits in­spect­ing the prop­erty and marked and un­marked po­lice cars up the drive­way.

The of­fi­cer in charge of the case said she was un­able to com­ment at this stage.

The home is nes­tled among the hol­i­day baches and per­ma­nent homes on the op­po­site side of the road to the lake.
