There has been another “unexplained” death at a property in Christchurch - the second in less than 24 hours.
Emergency services were called to reports of a sudden death on Kintyre Drive, Broomfield, about 3.25am on Wednesday.
A police spokeswoman said the death is being treated as unexplained at this stage.
On Wednesday morning, police said the investigation is ongoing and the death remains 'unexplained'.
Curnard died yesterday at his flat on Barnett Ave in Sydenham. Emergency services were called the property just before 3pm.
Six police cars, a fire truck and two ambulances were at a group of housing units owned by Otautahi Community Housing Trust.
A police spokeswoman said: "The death is currently being treated as unexplained, and inquiries are underway."
It comes less than a fortnight after Kenneth Daniel Hawkins, 50, was allegedly stabbed to death at the community housing complex where he lived in Sydenham.
A homicide probe was launched and a 28-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murdering Hawkins.
