Eleven days after a top health director was found dead at her Auckland home in "unexplained" circumstances, the scene examination of the property has finally finished. 

In an update on Friday afternoon, Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe said investigations into 63-year-old Pauline Hanna's death remain ongoing. An examination of the Upland Rd property in Remuera, where she was found dead last Monday, was completed on Friday.

"Police are continuing with a number of enquiries and are also still awaiting various results and analysis," Det Insp Pascoe said.

A post-mortem examination was completed last week and a police presence has remained at the property. 

Hanna, also known as Pauline Polkinghorne, worked at the Counties Manukau District Health Board (CMDHB) as an executive project director. She was laid to rest at a funeral on Thursday attended by dozens of her family, friends and colleagues in Parnell. 

Among those in attendance was her husband Phillip, an eye specialist, who told NZ Herald last week he was being treated as a "person of suspect".

"Police would like to thank those who have come forward with information to date and we encourage anyone else who has information to contact the investigation team at"
