ALMOST a week after the brutal stabbing of a 33-year-old woman at Naisaumua Village in Tailevu, police are still trying to find the suspect.

The stabbing incident claimed the life of Kesaia Veisei, a mother of four.

The suspect, who is known to police as the deceased's husband, remains at large.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the man was last seen in Nadi. But even with a special taskforce team deployed to the Western Division to continue the hunt, police had yet to make an arrest.

"The special taskforce that was sent there remains in the Western Division until the suspect is arrested. At the moment the search continues," she said.

In a separate incident, the police department has not been able to gather new information that could lead to the arrest of a woman who abandoned a 26 to 28-week-old foetus in Nabua.

The police have pleaded with people to come forward with any information that could help them locate the mother. The foetus was found wrapped in a cloth and placed in a garbage bag.
