THE body of a man who was found dead with multiple stab wounds outside the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva on Wednesday is yet to be identified.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the victim was found lying near the hospital’s Accident and Emergency Ward.
“The victim who is yet to be identified was found with stab wounds and attempts to revive him by medical authorities proved futile,” Ms Naisoro said.
“The victim is believed to be between 30-40 years old, is fair, has a beard and has a masi tattoo on his left arm from his shoulder up to his elbow.
“Investigators cannot positively confirm the victim’s ethnicity.”
Ms Naisoro confirmed two men were now in police custody for their alleged involvement in the death of the victim.
“The victim was seen being dropped off in a silver grey Prius, which was later found abandoned in Tacirua.
“The two suspects who are in their 30s later surrendered themselves at the Nabua Police Station.”
Members of the public who may have information that can assist police in identifying the victim are requested to call the Southern Division Command Centre on 9905529.
