NZ police find shovel linked to Grace Millane murder investigation

The man accused of murdering British tourist Grace Millane was once a promising athlete who represented New Zealand in his chosen sport.

The University of Lincoln graduate's father, David Millane, has flown to New Zealand and visited the place where her body was found.

The generic no-reply email, viewed by the Herald, names the accused in its subject heading.

Police have declined to comment on reports that Millane met the man charged with her murder on Tinder.

The man, now aged 26, played for several elite teams, including a New Zealand under-19 side.

Despite Judge Evangelos Thomas refusing to grant the application, the man's lawyer, Ian Brookie, indicated he would appeal the decision to the High Court - invoking an automatic 20 working day suppression order.

He added that comments that the District Court Judge should not have ordered interim name suppression are "entirely wrong".

"If we can trace the publication of it to somebody in New Zealand at the time then they can be done for contempt of court".

Her body was found on Sunday and a 26-year-old man has been charged with her murder.

Yesterday the relative's statement said it would be the only time they would publicly address the issue.

He said the British press were able to name the accused after his court appearance because "someone in New Zealand provided those details".

Remarkably, corals that bleached and survived 2016 were more resistant in 2017 to a recurrence of hot conditions. This is bad because coral is the foundation of marine ecosystems, much like trees are to forests, it said.


"Everybody who is accessing the defendant's name is obtaining information which has been suppressed by way of a court order which is completely undermining the current legal states of the case in New Zealand", Eaton QC told RNZ.

The email was sent out to people signed up to receive information on "what's trending in New Zealand".

Mr Eaton said those breaching suppression orders could not only endanger a fair trial but "potentially any future trial at all".

Grace's family are now in the process of organising to take her body home.

Google is not the only internet behemoth disseminating and allowing her murder accused's name to be published. If the breach was linked back to Google infrastructure in New Zealand, the tech giant could be prosecuted, he said.

We would like to remind the public that whilst we appreciate the public feeling around the Grace Millane case, it is an offence to breach a court order such as a name suppression, and this includes naming someone who has name suppression on social media.
