Police remain at the property of a woman who died in mysterious circumstances in central Auckland last week, eight days on.
Pauline Hanna, also known as Pauline Polkinghorne, was found dead at an Upland Rd address in Remuera on Monday, April 5. Her death is being treated as "unexplained".
On Tuesday, police confirmed officers remain at the property where the 63-year-old died.
"Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of Pauline Hanna," Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe, Auckland City CIB, told Newshub.
"The scene examination remains ongoing at the Upland Road property. This examination is nearing completion and we anticipate it to continue for the next few days."
Police wouldn't respond to questions over whether Hanna's husband Philip was being treated as a "person of suspect", though he told the NZ Herald he was.
A post-mortem was carried out last Wednesday, with a scene examination launched the following day.
Hanna was a top health director with Counties Manukau DHB. She held several roles with the organisation she joined in 1998, and most recently led Auckland's COVID-19 supply chain work.
A funeral for Hanna will be held at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell at 10am on Thursday.
