Counties-Manukau Police investigating the death of David Cunningham have established that he died as a result of stab wounds. The wounds were received during an altercation at a property on Ararimu Road, Ramarama in the early hours of Monday 27 August 2012.
Mr Cunningham was not known to any of the occupants at the address where the altercation occurred. The Police investigation is now focused on what Mr Cunningham was doing at the property and how he got there.
Counties Manukau Detective Inspector Dave Lynch says “Police have established that Mr Cunningham was at his home address on Fitzgerald Rd, Drury at approximately 10.00pm on Sunday evening; however, we have not been able to establish how or why he came to be at the Ararimu Road property approximately four hours later.
“There is the possibility that someone has picked up Mr Cunningham whilst hitchhiking or that he came into contact with someone known to him who may have given him a lift somewhere during that four hour period.
“It is also possible that someone travelling in the Fitzgerald and Ramarama Road area has seen Mr Cunningham on foot or in a vehicle.”
