Police are investigating the deaths of two people at a residential address in Waipukurau, Hawkes Bay.
Eastern District to Detective Inspector Rob Jones says the investigation is a result of information provided to police by family members shortly before 9am.
“Police will be continuing their enquiries at the address over the weekend with forensic support from the ESR.
“The names of the deceased cannot be released at this stage and information will be released to media when Police are able to do so.”
As the investigation is in its early stages it is too soon to speculate about what has occurred.
