Attributable to Detective Inspector Dene Begbie:
Around 12:30am today a male, who had sustained critical chest injuries as a result of what we believe to be a stabbing, arrived at the Otaika Motor Camp in Whangarei.
Despite efforts to revive him, he died at the scene.
A post mortem will be conducted to confirm cause of death.
