Social Media Advisor from New Zealand Police

At around 11pm, Police carried out a search warrant at a rural Waikato address.

A 23-year-old man was located at the address and has been arrested in connection to the death.

He has been charged with a number of serious offences including Murder, Aggravated Robbery and Threatens to Kill and will be appearing in the Hamilton District Court later this morning.

Police are now in a position to confirm the identity of the man who was killed.

He was 33-year-old Sean McKinnon, from Australia.

The family has been spoken to by Police this morning and advised of the arrest.

This is a traumatic time for his family and his partner and the New Zealand Police we will do everything we can to provide them with support they need.

I want to thank those in our community who contacted Police with information and assisted us with our investigation.

I also want to acknowledge the hard work from the investigators involved in this case. It is because of their dedicated efforts and the assistance from the public that Police were able to make an arrest within 24 hours.

We know this was an alarming incident that shocked people right across New Zealand and overseas.

We want to reassure the community that the safety of our community is our priority and we will do everything we can to find those responsible for serious crimes and hold them to account.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
