The man found dead outside a North Shore apartment following a “disorder incident” was the owner of popular Chinese restaurant Guangzhou Hotpot, which has outlets in the city and Newmarket, NZ Herald reports. His body was found outside an apartment in the 56-unit Chelsea Bay Residences on Rawene Rd in Birkenhead at about 4.30am on October 7. A friend, who did not want to be named, said he was “shocked for days” following Xin’s death, as Xin had been looking forward to life with his new partner. “There’s been a lot of speculation about what happened to him, so we are all really hoping that police will find the answers,” the friend said.
