He was Brent Andrew Bacon, 45, of St Clair.

A 37-year-old man has since been arrested and charged with murder, and a 30-year-old woman with being an accessory to murder.

Police said they were not seeking anyone else over Mr Bacon's death, but they did want to hear of any sightings of a dark blue 1995 Toyota people mover that travelled from Dunedin to Picton in the early hours of 5 February.
