To quote words said by Ian Walter White, "One reaps what one sows.

Maybe his lifestyle choices caught up with him, he had some toxic ones.

It's most unfortunate when people like him, who was known to have a Protection Order against him, addiction issues, as well as Mental Health issues, know how to work the systems and not get the necessary help he should have had years ago when he first came to the attention of the Police.

Some will be very relieved they know he will not be able to harm them anymore with the destructive behaviour he subjected them to.

One should never judge a book by it's cover.

There's more to this Ian Walter White than some may have been lead to believe by him, including by those who were unfortunate to have him cross their path with in recent years. He was not a "nice guy" but a person who used smooth talk to befriend people who he went on to abuse.

As they say "The truth will come out."

Due to this matter been a Police matter don't expect to be informed of the details how he died as there's ongoing investigations and Police generally don't disclose such matters in accordance with the maintenance of the law under the provisions of The Privacy Act.

Best they are left to do there jobs and those that may have information pertaining to Ian Walter White aka The Reverend and his lifestyle report it to the said Authority http://www.police.govt.nz/ .

That been said, it would be of benefit if the Police released a photograph of him when they see fit as some may not necessarily know him by his formal name but recognize him from here, there and everywhere, and it may lead to other information been provided.

An investigation into the death of Ian White is ongoing. Photo / Ben Fraser

It will be a month tomorrow since Ian White's body was found in his Peace St home, and police are still waiting to confirm his cause of death.

Mr White, 58, was found dead on May 3 and police deemed the Rotorua man's death suspicious.

District field crime manager Detective Senior Sergeant Lew Warner told the Rotorua Daily Post yesterday that police were still waiting for forensic results to come back.

A pathologist had been working with a forensic team to determine the cause of death and this process could take up to three weeks or more.

"Unfortunately it can be a long wait for forensic evidence to come back," Mr Warner said.

He said police hoped to have the results back next week.

Sandra Bristowe, a neighbour and friend of Mr White's late mother, said the waiting was "just frustrating".

"I have heard these things can take a long time, so I wait," she said. "I'm keeping busy, but it's in the back of my mind all the time, I keep wondering what went on?

"It's a dead end, that's how I feel."

Such toxic behavior to women and bar patrons was known to go on regularly where the aforementioned Ian Walter White worked when he was alive, in fact he and his staff were known to have intentionally subjected vulnerable persons to harassment.

How do we as a society address these issues when licenses have been "rubber stamped" and complaints to Hospitality industry officials and others are not followed up and no one on the executive is held to account?

It's overdue for accountability and education of those whose role it is to protect vulnerable members of society, including that of those with injuries on http://www.acc.co.nz and have the right to have a social life.



Wellington bar botches handling of sexual harassment complaints

KATARINA WILLIAMS

Last updated 12:03, July 27 2016

http://www.stuff.co....sment-complaint

A Courtenay Place bar has apologised to two Wellington women over its handling of their sexual harassment allegation.

Victoria Kershaw and Jay Thompson-Munn said on Tuesday that they felt their only option was to turn to social media after staff at Vinyl Bar failed to take seriously their complaint about a male patron's "unwanted touching".

On the night, a Vinyl Bar staff member implied sexual harassment could be expected "because [the women] were in a bar".
Frustrated, the pair eventually posted their complaint on the company's Facebook page – a post that was later deleted by bar staff.

That action sparked a social media firestorm and saw the Twitter hashtag #VinylBarHarassment trend in Wellington.

A staff member appealed to the bar's "close friends and family" to post positive comments online as a way to minimise the impact.

On Monday, Vinyl Bar issued a public apology on its Facebook page, just days before its liquor licence is due up for renewal.

Owner Leon Magowan-Wilson acknowledged there had been a litany of errors.

"Sexual harassment is a form of violence experienced by far too many women," Magowan-Wilson said. "Those who come forward about it should expect to be taken seriously and be met with a swift, sensitive and competent response.

"We failed in this, and we unreservedly apologise to the women who were hurt by this, and to the wider community who are rightly disappointed in us."


All staff would undergo a four-hour training course run by Wellington Sexual Abuse Prevention Network, to help manage any future incidents, he said.

Kershaw said she hoped the bar had learned its lesson.

"I really hope that the next time somebody goes to them and says they've been harassed, that they take action immediately.

"I've learned to not tolerate people touching me or making me uncomfortable in public any more ... Nobody should have to put up with that."

Wellington City Council has received a formal complaint from Thompson-Munn about whether the bar met its obligations as a responsible host.

She has the option to object to the renewal of the bar's liquor licence when the case comes up on Thursday.

Wellington police alcohol harm reduction officer Sergeant Damian Rapira-Davies has emailed Thompson-Munn to set up a meeting.

"Anything which impacts upon the safety of the public would typically be raised by police at a renewal hearing," he said.

A council inspector would be sent to assess the bar in the coming weeks.

The owners have said on their Facebook page that they want to make the bar a "safe and fun space for everyone", and have vowed to make changes.

"We're also publicly sharing this [incident] in the hopes that other Wellington bar owners and staff will learn from our mistake and know there's help available to make bars safer spaces."

VINYL BAR LISTS ITS FAILURES

* Didn't recognise the man as a safety threat

* Implied a woman could expect harassment because "she was in a bar"

* A bouncer was unable to remove the alleged troublemaker

* A complaint posted on Facebook was deleted

* Chose to review CCTV footage before responding

* A staff member asked for friends and family to post positive comments on social media

Ian Walter White had a very, very long history of "swindling' others of their legitimately obtained monies.

He was a professional con artist who not only had alcohol issues, he was also involved in other unlawful rubbish that you wouldn't want, nor encourage in your life or those around you.

He had gambling addictions and was known in his days as a Bar Manager, which he should never have had a license to be in thanks ex now convicted Rotorua Police ( Louise Nicholas related ones), to take advantage of patrons and spiking of drinks to obtain monies from vulnerable people as well as assaulted others.

Most unfortunately he wasn't locked up in the psychiatric ward that he should have been years ago to get the help he needed.

Tania, he wasn't the "generous" person you think he was, he had for a very, very long time been swindling monies from other people including when you first separated from him in the late 1990's early 2000's, in other words he was obtaining monies through dishonest/ criminal ways that didn't even belong to him.

http://www.acc.co.nz staff, past and present who failed in there assistance to help the people who reached out for help as a direct result of this violent alcoholic's unlawful and dangerous behaviours you should be ashamed of yourselves.

There are people who have lived in considerable fear for years for their "personal safety" and been through a living nightmare as a direct result of your serious failings, acting outside of your legal qualifications and forming opinions about matters that were well outside of your scope of practice.

It takes courage to report the likes of Ian Walter White who along with his close associates have "problems" they needed to address without been subjected to the nightmares you have added to.

ACC you owe a massive apology to the people concerned and their families and friends, as well as to the Police www.police.govt.nz/ who did there best to help the said people.

May we ask you to stop and ask yoursleves how you would feel if someone you loved was terrorized by someone with alcohol and violent tendencies like that of White's who was capable of inflicting this behaviour on himself?

Man found in bloodied flat died from natural causes, coroner rules

An alcoholic whose bloodied and bruised body was found in his Rotorua flat in May last year died as a result of a heart condition following blunt force injuries, a coroner has ruled.

Coroner Gordon Matenga today released the findings into the death of White, 58, on May 3 last year, saying his injuries were self-inflicted.

White's body was found in his Peace St flat on May 3 last year by a gardener who thought it was strange he had not come out to greet him as he normally would.

There was no reply when the gardener called to him, so he went inside the unlocked house. He saw blood throughout the flat and found White dead in his bed with his eyes swollen.
New details about what went on in White's life in the months leading up to his death were revealed at his inquest, which showed why the police initially treated the death as suspicious.

White had received a $90,000 inheritance after his mother's death but a woman he met soon after took advantage of his generous nature and alcohol abuse issues, the finding has revealed.

The woman, Claudia McDonald, admitted at the inquest in Rotorua on July 11 she had taken thousands of dollars from White, as well as selling a Jaguar car she claimed he had given her.

Police inquiries revealed White was "burning through his inheritance at an alarming rate".

He had lost or had stolen two bank cards and the bank refused to issue him another card, resulting in him having to go to the bank to get money out.

He regularly went to the bank, sometimes making daily withdrawals of $1000.

He also got a bank cheque to buy a Jaguar on April 27.

McDonald told police White had promised to buy her a car and she could pick it up from home.

On May 1, McDonald and her associate Ralph Pereira went to the Peace St house. Pereira knocked on the door but no one answered. Noticing the keys were inside the Jaguar, McDonald drove it away, telling police she understood she had White's permission to do so, the finding said.

Pereira was summonsed to attend the inquest but didn't show up and police were still looking for him.

McDonald sold the car that night, which she said was to pay a debt, the finding said.

White was a regular visitor to a local liquor store and would buy at least two 1 litre bottles of Kristov vodka.

His last sighting was on May 1 when he bought three bottles.

CCTV footage of White showed he was regularly covered in injuries and was often stumbling as if intoxicated.

A police scene examination of his house showed uneaten fish and chips on his table, 17 empty bottles of vodka and blood on the floors and walls throughout the flat. Among the blood on the floor in the hallway, a tooth was found.

There was dried blood on clothing at the foot of the bed.

Forensic experts ruled the blood was not consistent with the use of force and other patterns showed attempts at cleaning the blood using a cloth or a sponge. A bucket containing water and blood was knocked and the liquid splashed onto the wall.

Luminol testing was done inside and outside the house but no blood was found on the outside paths.

ESR scientist Wendy James noted White had moved around the house while bleeding, based on drip stains in various rooms and luminol impressions of feet or socks in the bedroom and kitchen.

She said a bloodied object or injury had been washed in the sink in the toilet and in the shower and there partial footwear impressions on the outside of the front door and along the hallway.

No fingerprints belonging to a third party were found inside the house.

White had a number of injuries, including black eyes, several minor cuts and scrapes and a long cut to the top of his head.

None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening. Matenga found White abused alcohol and was constantly injuring himself.

"He was seen by many people at many different times to be stumbling around, using walls and other objects to balance himself."

Witnesses in the days leading up to his death saw the cut on his head.

A toxicology report showed White had a blood alcohol level of 488 mcg per 100ml of blood.

"In non-habituated drinkers, such as a level would be sufficient to cause death. However, White had a history of long-term alcohol abuse with recent consumption of reportedly at least a bottle of spirits a day."

Matenga said White was "trapped in the clutches of an alcohol addiction".


Former wife pays tribute to "gentle soul"

White's former wife, Tania White, said her former husband had been a good man but his alcoholism coupled with his mother's inheritance money killed him.

Tania White told the Coroner's Court at the inquest that White was a wonderful father to their two children, which she wanted made public.

She said the last two years of his life were "very difficult" but his children were devastated by his death.

"The alcoholism and his mother's money killed him. Unfortunately people took advantage of him."

She said he had a good relationship with the children previously. He used to take his son to rugby and they bonded over their love of the sport, often texting each other over rugby matches.

"We knew things were not good because he stopped doing that. He was protecting them from how he was. There was shame and guilt of how he was. He was a real gentle soul."

She said the family acknowledged he was living an unhealthy life and made some "questionable choices" but they were his choices.

"They [their children] wanted to come today [to the inquest] but I wouldn't let them. I don't want them to remember these details. I wanted them to remember him as a father who was there for them."

Matenga said although there was evidence White's injuries were self inflicted, he was satisfied there was no evidence he intentionally tried to take his own life.

Matenga said White died of ischaemic heart disease with multiple blunt force injuries in a background of alcohol intoxication.

Ian Walter White had a very long history of drinking more than a bottle of whatever alcohol and spirits that he could get his hands on at any time of the day and night.

All preventable and goes back to those who have allowed this thug to slip through the cracks as he knew how to cheat the systems in place.

It's observed that there has been legal action in the family in the past relating to his late sister, Mina Ann's estate, one has to question if because Ian Walter White, and his brother Graeme, were denied access to those monies if Ian Walter White had acted dishonestly to obtain his late mothers monies, e.g forgery/ fraud.

Perhaps that needs to be explored, if it hasn't already as he was well known for his swindling monies from others, providing Police with false and misleading statements and others who he knew were vulnerable and to trusting that he targeted with "b/s spin" so he could live the lifestyle he did.

Were the Police and Coroner Gordon Matenga fully aware of the ins and outs of all the other litigation?

Incidentally $1000 a day withdrawn from the bank ??? Drug dealing and using??? We believe he was and know for a fact he was known to have a history of that to going back a very, very long time ago.

Society is a slighter safer place to be in now for those who he abused and whose lives he has destroyed along the way because of his own self inflicted unhappiness.




Rotorua man's death ruled accidental, alcohol a factor

The Peace St property in Rotorua where Walter White was found dead on May 3, 2016.

When his text messages to his daughter about the rugby stopped, Ian Walter White's former wife knew there was a problem.

She was right.

White was found dead at his Peace Street flat in Rotorua on May 3, 2016, and according to a report from Coroner Gordon Matenga, released on Tuesday, White died from Ischaemic heart disease.

Coroner Gordon Matenga
ruled that Ian Walter White's injuries were self-inflicted and there was no evidence he had attempted to take his own life.

Excessive alcohol consumption was also cited as a contributary factor, fuelled by a $90,000 inheritance White received in July 2015 after his mother's death.

READ MORE: Suspicious Rotorua death, police name deceased

Tragically, White's alcoholism and inheritance did not go unnoticed with a woman he met soon after taking advantage of his generous nature and alcohol abuse issues, Matenga revealed.

The woman, Claudia McDonald, gave evidence at the inquest in Rotorua on July 11 - details of which were suppressed until now - and admitted she had taken thousands of dollars off White, as well as selling a Jaguar car which she claimed White had given her.

The full inquest report paints a picture of an alcohol fuelled demise.

But White's former wife Tania White - crying at times - told the inquest that there was more to him than his drinking problems, describing White as "a gentle soul".

"There was another side to Ian. He was the father to two children," she said.


"The last years of his life were difficult with his drinking. His mother's money killed him."

She said White had a generous nature - something people took advantage of - and that when he stopped texting his children she believed it was "protecting them from how he was".

She also told the court why she prevented their children attending the hearing.

"I wanted them to remember their dad who loved them."

White's body was discovered by gardener Fala Filipo who was concerned when White failed to greet him as usual.

In a statement read to the court by Rotorua CIB detective Russell Bell, Filipo's first words on discovering White were revealed.

"The first thing I saw was blood," he said.

"I was not sure he was dead, I called to him."

The final report also revealed Filipo found White lying on his bed.

"Mr Filipo could see blood and that Mr White's eyes were swollen."

The subsequent police investigation revealed that a total of 17 empty Kristov vodka bottles were found in the property as well as an uneaten fish and chip packet on the table.

The property was also found to contain blood on the walls, floor and amongst the blood on the hallway floor, a tooth.

"A fingerprint in blood was located on the fish and chip wrapping," Matenga said.

"This fingerprint belonged to Mr White. No fingerprints belonging to a third party were located within the address."

The report also detailed a visit on April 30 by White to Oppies Fish n Chip shop, where he was described as being intoxicated and "it was also noticeable that Mr White had several injuries to his face and head".

"These included a wound on the top rear of his head, a smaller wound on his left forehead, two black eyes and smaller scratches about his head and face."

Matenga cited White's alcohol issues as the cause of the injuries.

"Mr White was well known to abuse alcohol and as a result, was constantly injuring himself."

The post mortem report also revealed "markedly elevated" levels of blood alcohol.

"In non-habituated drinkers, such a level would be sufficient to cause death."

"However, Mr White had a history of long term alcohol abuse with recent consumption of reportedly at least a bottle of spirits per day."

Matenga ruled that White was "in the clutches of an alcohol addiction" but that his death was accidental.

Ian Walter White was known to try cover his derriere, he wouldn't have wanted any of those who he befriended, including little old impressionable ladies who were friends of his mother, or the equally as sleazy as himself trash he may have taken home to get into bed with, to see blood splattered inside or they would have found out what he was truthfully like so the likelihood of him cleaning up his own blood is probably very high.

Commonsense prevails.

The guy was sleaze and mixed with those who were as equally crooked as himself for a very, very long time.

His family should be fronting up to the Police and disclosing just how much money he dished out to them over the years and add up the sums that it didn't tally up remotely to what he would have been legitimately paid as an employee. He stole from others to feed his ego and addictions that were not just limited to alcoholism.

Police are not stupid, they have reliable information passed onto them all the time.

Sadly some have family members they don't know the facts about, or are in denial of accepting they are the way they are. We believe it may be called suffering from Stockholm syndrome when one has such cunning, manipulative, controlling, smooth talking types of people in their lives.

Brother raises concerns about Ian White's death

Graeme White can't help but shake the feeling there is more to his brother's death.

The Rotorua man has raised questions about the police's handling of the investigation, saying he had some serious concerns about the way his brother, Ian White, died.

Coroner Gordon Matenga has ruled the death was as a result of a heart condition following blunt force injuries and alcohol intoxication.

But Graeme said in his view several things didn't add up and more thorough forensic testing should have been carried out because he didn't believe his brother's injuries were accidentally self-inflicted in a drunk state.
Police have acknowledged in a written response to Rotorua Daily Post questions that the death was "unusual" and was initially treated as a homicide.

However, following a thorough investigation, it was ruled there was no evidence to indicate anyone else was involved in his death.

Bay of Plenty police field crime manager Detective Inspector Lew Warner said a detailed forensic examination was carried out including a luminol blood examination of the scene to highlight any areas where significant trauma or violence might have occurred.

It found they didn't believe anyone else other than Ian had been in the house when he died.

But Graeme said he took his own photographs inside the house following the police investigation.

He said his brother would constantly fall and sustain injuries as a result of being drunk but he questioned whether those injuries were enough to bring on a heart turn.

Coroner hears evidence into death of Ian White
11 Jul, 2017 2:44pm
Quick Read

"Stress can cause heart failure. Was it through him falling? I have seen him in that intoxicated state and a drunk person doesn't fall, they flop.

"Those blood stains, they don't look like he has fallen."

Graeme said Ian's home was dirty and messy yet there was evidence someone had tried to clean up the blood.

"He is not the sort who would have attempted to clean it up."

Bloodied footprints by the bed where Ian's body was found were ruled to be Ian's but Graeme said that wasn't possible as they were smaller than his feet, and his brother had feet two sizes bigger.

"I don't believe these footprints were his ... Ian always had trouble getting shoes. He was size 13. Mine were size 11.
Graeme White, who has size 11 feet, stands next to bloodied footprints which police said belonged to Ian White. Ian White had size 13 feet. Photo/supplied

"I feel disappointed in the standard of the investigation. They took 67 blood samples and they tested eight of them, 30 were taken from the car but it was deemed old blood."

Graeme said several people who had contacted him about Ian's lifestyle in the months leading up to his death.

Graeme and his wife tried several times to get him to lead a healthier lifestyle but he said they were "beating their heads against a brick wall".

He said his brother needed moral support all the time, even when they were younger, and he took their mother's death hard.

"Our mother was that moral support ... I tried to help him and our sister had tried to help him as well but he always tried to find a quick solution to everything."

Meanwhile, Mr Warner said police couldn't find evidence of anyone else being at the scene or any sign of a struggle.

Mr Warner said bloody footprints were found within the house and Ian had blood on the soles of his feet. There was also clothing and socks (stockings) beside his bed that contained blood stains. The blood found was identified as belonging to Ian.

Mr Warner said the size of the footprints were hard to determine but indicated the person had moved around the house and there had been an attempt to clean up the scene.

However, the blood on the mop handle and towel used, was identified as belonging to Ian.

A large number of blood samples were taken from the scene. Many of these samples were in close proximity to each other.
Blood was on the walls throughout Ian White's home, which his brother questions were from self-inflicted accidental injuries. Photo/supplied

Mr Warner said that after consultation with ESR, it was decided to examine samples in each distinct area. If any DNA came back that was not Ian's, he said police would have examined further samples. However, all blood samples examined belonged to Ian.

He said a detailed examination of Ian's car was completed and no blood was detected on the seats, carpets, pillars or steering wheel.

"Our inquiries revealed that sadly over the last months of his life, Mr White was a chronic alcoholic and his health was deteriorating. There were many times over this period where he was seen with visible injuries. There were occasions where people saw him falling over causing injuries to himself," he said.

"Our inquiry could find no evidence indicating anyone else was involved in his death."

Scotty Royce Sounds like Police wanted a quick wrap up investigation and are laying most of the blame on his alcoholism but the fact someone has tried cleaning up the scene could be why there's a lack of evidence?? Maybe I should have been a detective lol but I get the feeling there's more to this case than a self inflicted drunken accident.
