    The Coroner's investigating whether the death of Maori All Blacks and Chiefs Super Rugby player Sean Wainui may have been a suicide

    The Coroner's investigating whether the death of Maori All Blacks and Chiefs Super Rugby player Sean Wainui may have been a suicide


    The 25-year-old died last Monday in a car crash at Tauranga's McLaren Falls Park, in the Bay of Plenty.

    He was farewelled on Sunday at Gisborne's Te Wainui Marae.

    Coroner Louella Dunn says it's being treated as a suspected suicide.

    She's made interim suppression orders around the circumstances - meaning further details can't be published at this stage.

    If you are worried about your mental health or someone else's - the best place to get help is your GP or local mental health provider.

    If you or someone else is in danger or endangering others, call police immediately on 111.
