A post mortem examination will be held tomorrow on the body of a man found lying on a road in Auckland.
Police are still working to identify the victim - who they believe is in his late teens or early twenties, and is Maori or Polynesian.
He was wearing a green sweat shirt and his blue jeans were held up by a length of while electrical cable.
Police will remove his body from the scene later today - and also want to speak to a man called Hohepa who phoned 111 from a nearby phone box to report finding the body.
A woman's voice was also heard describing where the body was.
Hohepa told police he would wait at the scene for them - but had gone by the time they arrived.
Detective Inspector Dave Lynch is now pleading with him to contact them again.
Counties Manukau Police have launched a homicide inquiry.
Mr Lynch says the identity of the body isn't yet know and police are seeking information on him.
