Police may spend another two days at the scene of Mykono’s Pizza and Pasta in Paeroa as they continue to search for clues in the suspicious death of Jordan Voudouris.
The 55-year-old’s body was found on the driveway behind the takeaway store at about 6am on Monday.

Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Whitehead says the scene examination is continuing and may take another two days to complete.
“The investigation team are still working to profile and background Mr Jordan Voudouris to gain an understanding of his habits and routines.
“Friends, employees and patrons have been able to assist us with this.”
He says the Paeroa community has been helpful in assisting police with the investigation.
“Police are also working with local businesses that were open on Sunday night to identify people who were out and about and who may be able to help reconstruct activity in the town that night.
“The investigation team encourage anyone who may have information to contact us.”
Police will not release the details of Mr Voudouris’s injuries but are looking into the possible link between the death and two attempted armed robberies in Katikati and Waihi the same morning.

A short time later two men attempted to rob the Park Road Dairy in Katikati armed with a handgun and hammer.
