Police Continue Investigation Into Korrey Whyman's Murder

Investigations continue, six months after the death of 28-year-old Kawerau woman Korrey Whyman.

Whyman was shot, inside a vehicle along State Highway 33 towards Mourea on September 25th, last year.

She was rushed to hospital but later died of her injuries.

Last week, investigators went to a location near Lake Rotoiti looking for specific items related to the homicide.

Police also searched a forest area behind properties of interest, plus an area along State Highway 30.

One man's charged with her murder and is currently before the courts.

But Detective Inspector Lindsay Pilbrow said Police believe others were involved.

"You might have information about the shooting, the motor vehicle used, or you might have overheard conversations that were suspicious," Pilbrow said.

He said it's information they need to know, because what people think is insignificant could be a critical piece to the puzzle.

Anyone with information relating to Whyman's death is urged to ring 105 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
