Police have released the name of the man found dead near a rural Norsewood property.
Ian Roy Johansen, 67, was visiting a property on Blairgowrie Rd, off SH2, with his family when he died from natural causes just after midday yesterday.
Dannevirke Sergeant Tony LeSueur said Mr Johansen left the house to clear a gateway that had become waterlooged.
"While carrying out this work Mr Johansen has died of natural causes,” he said.
He was located about an hour later by a visitor to the property, but was not found in a ditch next to the road as was earlier reported.
