10 year old's death a "scar" on the Waitarere Beach community
Horowhenua District Mayor Brendan Duffy says the death of Alex Fisher is a "scar in our community". The 10 year old's body was found yesterday after a mammoth four day search by hundreds of volunteers and emergency service staff. Police removed his body from the beach area last night. They have now launched a homicide investigation. A vigil for Alex will be held on Sunday. The tragedy has hit the three communities of Ohau, Waitarere, and Levin.
