Body found at Auckland's Judges Bay

5:17 pm on 22 January 2015

A person has been found dead lying face-down at an Auckland beach.

Police said it was not clear how the death at Judges Bay happened but it is not being treated as suspicious.

They are also asking the public for help identifying a man found dead in a central Napier alley earlier this week.

Detective Sergeant John McCarthy said the man had no form of identification on him but has distinctive tattoos, such as a snake wrapped around a skull and a sword on one arm.

Mr McCarthy said anyone with information about the man should get in touch.
