Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Update: 3:13PM A 46-YEAR-old Fijian man is dead after his car slammed into the back of a semi-trailer parked on the side of the road in Wacol, Brisbane, Australia.

According to, Saliceni Kaladrou stormed into the backdoor of his ex-partner's Forest Lake home in the early hours of yesterday morning and stabbed her repeatedly in the head, neck, chest and arms.

However, the victim's 18-year-old son saved his mother's life after he interfered and jumped in to save his mother and fight off his father.

The online news reported that the mother and son were rushed to hospital while Kaladrou fled to his fate.

The horrific chain of events has shocked Brisbane's tight-knit Fijian community as investigations continue.
