Police say they are still trying to establish why Ross Bremner was at a Waikato property where he killed two people before taking his own life.

Bremner's body was found at a Kinohaku address alongside those of Mona Waikoko Tuwhangai , 82, and Maurice Raymond O'Donnell, 72, on October 7.

Three days earlier, the 34-year-old had killed his 60-year-old mother, Clare, and critically injured his 64-year-old father, Keith, in a knife attack at the Otorohanga home he shared with them.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Patterson, in an update on the inquiry on Thursday, said police had been told that the car Bremner used was seen at the Kinohaku address earlier on the day of the attack on his parents.

He said it had not yet been established what time the couple there had died.

"Police are still trying to establish why Ross Bremner was at the Kinohaku address and how he got there," he said.

"But based on inquiries to date have been unable to confirm any connection between this address and the Bremner family's."

Det Sen Sgt Patterson said police were continuing to interview people in relation to the case.

Further forensic results were expected in the next two weeks, which investigators hoped would paint a clearer picture of what occurred.

Mr Patterson said Keith Bremner continued to improve in Waikato Hospital and was being supported by his family.
