Police identify two vehicles in homicide

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 4 days ago

Police investigating the execution-style killing of Upper Hutt woman Lois Tolley say they have have identified two vehicles of interest from security camera footage.

One is a blue Subaru; the other a silver, lowered, sedan-type car with black wheels.

Both were seen in the area of Ms Tolley's Ward Street flat in Wallaceville at the time of her death on December 10.

Detective Senior Sergeant Glenn Barnett says police want to hear from anyone who recognised the vehicles or who has information to identify the owners.

He also released descriptions of four suspects:

* Male, about 1.88m tall, skinny build, aged 20s to 30s; wearing dark, baggy clothing, a hoody with the hood up, dark low-slung pants and possibly white underwear; carrying a large, rectangular object

* Male, shorter than first suspect, skinny build; wearing dark baggy clothing

* Male, tall, lean build; wearing dark clothing, long dark pants and a hoody with the hood up

* Male, sounded younger than the other suspects; believed to be the man seen upset outside Ms Tolley's flat.

Set Sen Sgt Barnett acknowledged that the descriptions weren't detailed.

"But we reiterate what we've said before - somebody knows who these people are, and they need to come forward and share what they know with police."

Police previously said Ms Tolley was shot at point blank range and stabbed in what was an "execution" killing.

They also believe one or more females might have been involved and that more than the four people seen outside the flat that night know what happened.
