Mr. Barry Blayney, a 76 year New Zealand national, has been found murdered in his home in Crooked Tree Village. He has been living in Crooked Tree Village for about 10 years and was operating a small grocery store.
This morning a neighbor, Fiona Building went to the shop to purchase some items and when she called out for him, he did not answer. Upon checking the unlocked house, Mr. Blayney was found with his arms bound behind his back and tape across his mouth. Robbery is believed to have been the cause and earlier this evening the police found some of the items from his shop behind some bushes in the area.
Three young men living (not native) in the village have been taken into custody by the police and the investigation continues.
Crooked Tree villagers remained in shocked as to why someone would do something like this.
