POLICE have ruled out foul play in the deaths of two women whose lifeless bodies were found in the Wainivula river over the weekend.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the two women, one in her 60s and the other 54 years old died as a result of drowning.

She said autopsies were done yesterday and it showed both women died as a result of asphyxiation because of drowning.

Ms Naisoro said there was no link between the two women and their deaths.

She said the two women were reported missing by their individual families.

She added the woman in her 60s was reported missing on Thursday, a day before her body was found in the Wainivula river.

Ms Naisoro said such was the case for the second woman whose body was discovered on Sunday.

She said both women suffered from mental illness.

According to Ms Naisoro there was nothing suspicious in the way the women went missing and how they were found.

She said the autopsy revealed nothing of such nature.
