Police investigating the homicide of an Auckland man at a central city park have found clothing and "other items of interest".
Steven Harris, 54, was fatally stabbed in Myers Park between 11.20pm and 11.30pm on Wednesday night. He was found by passers-by with wounds to his upper body.
Harris was taken to Auckland City Hospital but died soon after.
The incident happened at the northern end of the park, in an area beneath the Mayoral Drive overbridge.
The scene examination is ongoing today, but police have located several items of interest, including clothing.
"A specialist search group have located items of interest from the park ... clothing and other items of interest," police spokeswoman Noreen Hegarty said.
She would not say what the other items of interest were.
The park has been reopened, but the scene where Harris was attacked underneath the overbridge remains cordoned off.
Police have also completed luminol testing in the area and have "firmed up" where the attack happened underneath the bridge.
Hegarty said police were still trawling through CCTV footage in the hope of identifying a suspect.
Police had obtained CCTV footage which showed a man of interest leaving the park and heading to Queen St shortly after the attack.
The man was described as medium build, short, wearing a white hat, cream top and black or dark coloured jeans.
Police would also be speaking to business and apartment owners in the area to see if there was other CCTV footage of the attack.
Officers were still keen to hear from people who were in the park at the time, including two Asian men and an Asian woman.
The incident was the second fatal attack on a homeless person in the central city in the past three months but police said there was no suggestion that homeless people were being targeted.
Edwin John Linder, 42, died on August 3 after being attacked in Mills Lane.
A person has been charged in relation to his death.
In October last year, the park was the scene of another violent attack where a man was slashed from his temple to his jaw.
