The director of the property management company looking after the Christchurch home where a teenager was stabbed to death has spoken out, saying she was “conned” by the person who made the holiday booking and is devastated by the consequences.
Sue Harrison told Newshub on Sunday she is “completely devastated” by the death of 16-year-old Zion Purukamu, who was stabbed at a party at her property on Saturday night.
Two other teenagers were injured during the incident.
Harrison says she was “cheated” by whoever made the booking via Air BnB.
“The person who booked the house told us one thing and did another… we have strict procedures around parties because they cause a lot of rubbish and noise and we never want to see them happen.
“This one sneaked through and goodness knows what those kids were doing… we’re angry and hurt.”
She says she understands Purukamu was stabbed to death outside her property – not inside it.
Police are still hunting for his killer, having already spoken with the two other injured teens to try and ascertain what happened.
