'Justice needs to be served' in petrol station death - victim's daughter

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

The daughter of a man who died just over a year after being punched at a petrol station is angry there will not be any "justice".

The daughter of a man who died just over a year after being punched at a petrol station is angry there will not be any "justice".

Nigel Landreth was bleeding from his ears when he was found by a tanker driver on the forecourt of Mobil Forbury, Dunedin, about 10.30pm on Saturday, July 7, 2018.

He died in Dunedin Hospital on Sunday night – 14 months after he was attacked.

Sergeant Kallum Croudis says the attacker cannot be charged with Landreth's death because he died "well over" the time period of one year and one day when someone could be held criminally responsible for the killing of another.

'They'd be dressed like they lived in Ponsonby': Robert Sarkies on why he couldn't make Scarfies today

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

Twenty years ago, a 32-year-old Dunedin native cobbled together $250,000 to make a film.

Twenty years ago, a 32-year-old Dunedin native cobbled together $250,000 to make a film.

The script, which he wrote with his younger brother, was a black comedy about five Otago University students who luck into a squat – a rambling old house, which, if somewhat derelict, offers the distinct advantage of free power. They soon discover that power is fuelling heat lamps for a massive marijuana plantation in the basement. It's all fun, games and parties until the pot's owner comes back looking for his stash.

The film was, of course, Scarfies, an instant classic that, set against a backdrop of sticky-floored pubs and NPC finals, captured New Zealand student culture, and particularly Dunedin student culture, in a way that hadn't been done before and arguably hasn't since.
