Please attribute to Detective Inspector Aaron Proctor, Waitematā Police:

Police have launched a homicide investigation after a woman was found deceased at an address in Henderson early this morning.

Emergency services were called to the Great North Road address at around 1.30am where the woman was located.

A scene examination is underway and Police are working hard to establish the circumstances of what has occurred at the address. We are speaking with a number of people in relation to this matter.

A post-mortem is expected to be conducted tomorrow and formal identification procedures carried out. Until this has been completed and next-of-kin has been advised, we will not be in a position to release the name of the victim.

There are no further details available at this stage however Police will look to provide an update later this afternoon.
