The Independent Investigation Office…or IIO…Is to send a team to Nelson Monday to look into the events following the armed robbery.
Executive Director Kellie Kilpatrick says they’ve been reviewing the information forwarded to them by police after Stevenson jumped from a bridge after the police chase.
They will want to interview Stevenson – who is known as the “affected person” for IIO purposes.
We are learning a little more about how he fell.
The IIO says he climbed over the side of the bridge and attempted to climb down a tree, falling approximately 12 metres below.
We have no other information because the local police will not talk until the IIO decides its course of action.
