Inquiry after woman found dead at home
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.
