Thursday, August 28, 2014

THE post-mortem examination on a man who was discovered in a creek beside Subrail Park in Labasa early this week is yet to be conducted.

Divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said they were waiting for a pathologist from Suva.

"Right now, the body is still at the hospital and we are waiting for the pathologist to come and carry out the examination," he said.

"Once the examination is conducted, we will then be able to ascertain the cause of death.

"But for now, that's all we can say about the incident."

It was earlier reported that stallholders at the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North made the grisly discovery on Monday morning.

The stallholders said the man was lying on his side facing an empty boat.
