The Australian tourist and his Canadian girlfriend were sleeping at the Te Toto Gorge carpark in Raglan, on the west coast of the North Island, early this morning.

Police say a man demanded the key to the couple's campervan, before shooting the Australian. His partner, who is said to be "very shocked and distressed", managed to escape the gunman and alerted the police. She had to run several kilometres to get help.

"At approximately 3:20am, police were notified that an offender had approached a van and shots were fired," Detective Inspector Graham Pitkethley said.

"At approximately 8:00am this morning, police located the van with the man's body inside."

Police said they found the van with the body inside some 80 kilometres away.

Armed officers have launched a manhunt across the Waikato district to find the gunman, who remains at large.

Te Toto Gorge Raglan, situated about three hours south of Auckland on New Zealand's west coast, is a popular coastal destination for walkers and hikers.

Detective Inspector Pitkethley said "the terrain where the vehicle was stolen is quite rough with a lot of bush around".

Makes me wonder if these murderers were inspired by the recent attention on Ivan Milat.
Eg: Canada , Byron bay , NZ .
Did the offenders listen up to the freshly released podcast and news etc?
