A man who'd been sleeping rough around Auckland has been found dead at the back of a grocery store by his acquaintances.
The man was discovered in the store in Halston Rd, Balmoral, by some of his acquaintances just before 1pm today.
Police are unsure how long he's been dead for, but say it's unlikely to be more than a day.
The man had been sleeping rough in the area for some time, police say.
Police have been at the scene all afternoon and are investigating what caused the person's death, Inspector Ian Brooker said.
