A body found on an Auckland beach is due to undergo a post-mortem examination this morning.
Police investigating the discovery of the body, which was found at Ladies Bay in St Heliers yesterday morning, say the death is being treated as unexplained.
Auckland police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty said a post-mortem examination had been scheduled for this morning.
The results would determine whether a homicide investigation would be launched, she said yesterday.
Police would not release details of the person's age or gender until next of kin had been notified, Ms Hegarty said.
