Police may have found the weapon which killed Connor Morris.

In a statement issued today police said they had "located a number of items of interest that are being forensically examined. It is too soon to be able to confirm if one of them is the weapon and it will be several days yet before Police are able to do this."

The finds come after a "meticulous scene examination" at several locations on Don Buck Road where Morris died.

The 26-year-old boyfriend of Paul Holmes' adopted daughter Millie Elder-Holmes was killed early on Sunday morning following a fight in Massey, West Auckland.

Morris was known to police and his father was a member of the Head Hunters motorcycle gang, and Morris himself was once a prospect.

Detective Inspector Greg Cramer said the police had spoken to a large number of people present on the night, and said he was "satisfied" with the progress that is being made.

"The team are working hard, they'll be working through the weekend and everyone involved is putting in long hours.

"We appreciate the public interest in Mr Morris's death, including a large amount of posts on social media, however this is a sensitive investigation that will not benefit from being played out in the media" Cramer said.

A steady stream of people have visited the scene today to lay floral tributes and pay their respects.
