Police refocus on slain farmer case

6:06 am on 4 December 2010

Police investigating the killing of a Manawatu farmer are refocusing their investigation back to exactly what happened on the morning when his body was found.

Scott Guy, 31, was found shot dead in the driveway of his farm near the town of Feilding on 8 July.

More than 20 police officers returned to Mr Guy's property on Thursday, to get a greater understanding of how the family lived.

Detective Inspector Sue Schwalger said the visit helped to focus the investigation on the facts.

She said the team members discuss the scene on a daily basis, but they had never been to there as a group.

Detective Inspector Schwalger said the number of officers working on the case is to be reassessed next week.
