Woman's death not suspicious - police

Wednesday 16 Jan 2013 11:00 a.m.

Police now believe the death of a woman found on the shoreline of a beach north of Auckland last week is not suspicious.

The death of 60-year-old Katherine Bennett was initially treated as unexplained after she was found on January 7 on Arkles Bay Beach, on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula north of Auckland.

Detective Senior Sergeant Brett Batty said extensive inquiries were made by police and forensic experts to determine if there were any suspicious circumstances and they now believed there were not.

"Police spoke to a wide sector of the community in the course of the investigations. Valuable information was provided by the public which we wish to acknowledge with gratitude," he said.

He said police would not say how Ms Bennett died and her death would be referred to the coroner.
