Police investigating the murder of a Cambodian national are reaching out to the public for any information.

On Police Ten 7 tonight, Waikato Police are revealing new information which they hope will help in their investigation into the killing of Sao Young.

The 40-year-old Cambodian national was last seen on the evening of Thursday, March 12, in the Insoll Ave area of Hamilton.

Police believe it’s on this night he was killed.

He was last seen wearing long dark-coloured pants, a grey sweatshirt, black Nike shoes and a distinctive grey Nixon cap, says a police spokesperson.

“His body was then transported to a rural property in Gordonton, where it was discovered nearly a month later, on Monday, April 13.

“Mr Young’s family are at a loss and desperate to know what happened to him.

“We’re asking the community to please tune in to Police Ten 7 tonight at 7:30pm on TVNZ 2, assess this new information, and see whether it helps you, to help us.”

The case will also be posted on Police Ten 7 Facebook, Waikato District Police Facebook and NZ Police Facebook after the programme screens.

Police Ten 7 can also be watched on TVNZ 2 +1 an hour later.

Anyone who can help once the programme screens tonight is encouraged to call the Police Ten 7 Information Line on 0800 107 4636.
