The site where Millie Elder-Holmes' boyfriend, Connor Morris, was killed has been blessed after police gathered further items of evidence.

A kaumatua at 1pm today blessed the site in Don Buck Rd in Massey where Morris was attacked 10 days ago, with members of Morris' family and officers from the Operation Venice team present.

The scene examination in Don Buck Rd is finished and police confirmed that further items of interest had been located in the past few days. These were undergoing forensic examination.

Because of the highly sensitive investigation involving many people, limited information is available from police.

Police reassured the public that a great deal of work was going on behind the scenes and that they were committed to making sure the offender was held to account.

The Operation Venice team is made up of more than 30 officers, including senior detectives with vast experience in major crime investigations.

The team is being led by Detective Inspector Greg Cramer and Detective Senior Sergeant Stan Brown, of the Waitemata police.

"We need to ensure that every possible piece of evidence and information that can be gathered is gathered, so that when the offender is put before the courts, they are judged on all the available evidence," Cramer said.

Police thanked Morris' family for their understanding.
