Police investigating the suspicious death of a man at an Auckland party say they want to speak to three people who spent time helping him.
The 25-year-old man died in Mount Roskill early on Saturday.
He was among several groups that had met up at the Gemini Bar in Otahuhu and then travelled to 19 Haughey Avenue sometime after 2.30am.
Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe said the three males police want to speak to described as Maori and Polynesian and aged 18 to 25 helped to put the man into a recovery position.
“These three stayed with the young man and continued to assist him after others had left the address, and I am confident that they will be able to help us piece together what has occurred,” he said.
“This group will know who they are and we need their help.”
Mr Pascoe said police were also trying to identify the occupants of a grey Audi four-door sedan.
The car, described as having a rounded shaped body, left the address shortly before police arrived.
Police had responded to noise complaints at the home about 3am when they were asked to help a critically injured man in the driveway.
Attempts to revive the man were unsuccessful and he died at the scene. NZN
