Fiji Police investigate young girl’s death

Update: 11:42AM
POLICE have launched an investigation into the death of a 14-year-old girl who was reported missing from her Viria home in Naitasiri two days ago.

And the 35-year-old man, who police found with her in a vacant home, is now admitted at Suva’s CWM Hospital after he allegedly tried to injure himself.

Fiji Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the young girl was reported missing on Thursday and checks made at all likely places proved futile.

She said the man had been reported missing as well from his Wainiika Settlement home, but a day earlier.

 “Yesterday, information was received that the two were seen occupying a vacant house and when police arrived at the scene, they discovered the victim dead,” Ms Naisoro said.

She said investigations were continuing.
