Man found dead in home



THE body of a young man has been recovered from a home in Katurasele village, South Choiseul, early on Saturday (June 30) morning.

The man had been reported missing earlier on Thursday last week.

Police in Taro could not be reached for comments on Monday.

While the cause of death is yet to be officially established, the registered nurse at the Papara clinic has declared the high possibility of gas asphyxiation, which is attributed to a ‘one-litre petrol found near the body’.

Community members are shocked by the discovery, saying that this is the first to have happened there. Condolences and sympathies are being conveyed to the deceased’s family.
