For anyone interested in this story here’s the original media version – timeline and key words are highlighted in red:

‘Decomposed body found on Waiheke Island not suspicious’


Police say the discovery of a badly decomposed body on Waiheke Island is not being treated as suspicious

[Clearly, there’s no mention of an autopsy at this stage, and the police have already declared that the body “is not being treated as suspicious.” Moderator B.]

A spokeswoman said inquiries were likely to continue to determine the cause of death.

The decomposed body of the unknown person was found by a member of the public on the island on Thursday (1 October 2015).

Four members of the Criminal Investigation Branch and eight uniformed police officers arrived at Te Atawhai Whenua Reserve, between Matiatia and Oneroa village, at 9.30am on Friday (2 October 2015).

They spent around 90 minutes up a bush track, at the cordoned off site, before the body was removed at 11am.

It was taken to Auckland by the police vessel Deodar where it will undergo a post mortem, detective sergeant John De Heer said.

On Thursday, Waiheke police acting sergeant Raymond Matthews said the body had lain undiscovered for some time.

“It’s too badly decomposed to tell the sex or age of the person,” he said.

not suspicious

As usual, police had already told the media, before there was even a mention of an autopsy, that the “badly decomposed body on Waiheke Island is ‘not being treated as suspicious’”.

The police have since slightly altered their story timeline to suggest that the phrase “not suspicious” appeared after the post mortem examination was carried out, presumably sometime in late afternoon on 2 October. [Was it something we said :)]

In fact, even if there was a necropsy, and we strongly suspect there wasn’t one, it would take the experts many days, if not weeks (indeed, if ever), to determine the cause of death, especially when the corpse was so badly decomposed that even its age or sex remained a mystery to NZ police.
