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?

Absolutely disgusting, this bloke was in charge of a medium security prison housing sex offenders. He’s now one himself.

Reading this, you'd think it's only a matter of time before something really bad happens with or to this guy.

Wonder where he'll turn up next?

Gutsy move going for self-defence when you had the guy tied up before you killed him. On the other hand, there's probably nothing else he could have run with - definitely should have gone the guilty plea.

just watched Fox crime channel and saw this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Dixie who murdered a young 18 year old in England. He actually lived in our country for a bit and attacked a female in perth climbing through her window, stabbing her, knocking her unconscious and raping her. She was lucky to have lived. He was deported back to England after this and committed the murder then.

Don't like the connection we have with these murderers. There's a few cases of english killers living over in Australia.

Stabbed to death with a shiv. I wonder how hard they'll try to find out who did it.

Huckle, 33, who abused children and babies over a nine-year period, was sentenced in a London Court to life in prison in 2016 after pleading guilty to 71 offences.

Using the pretext of being a photographer, English teacher and Western philanthropist, Huckle won the trust of impoverished families before carrying out the abuse.

Huckle's crimes included rapes, which he filmed, photographed and shared online with paedophiles worldwide.

Found guilty:

I have a hard time believing the jury really used a full three hours.
