POLICE Commissioner Mathew Varley has confirmed in his weekly media conference yesterday that the medical report regarding the Auki motel death has been received.

He said investigation is continuing and they are waiting on the Director of Public Prosecution for the review of the file, as the file is with the DPP’s office.

Responding to questions asked in regards to the death, he said no arrest has been made and police do not have any particular suspect as yet.

“The medical report has been received and at this stage waiting on the DPP for review of the file to assess the evidence and at this pointing time no one has been arrested and we don’t have a particular suspect we are waiting to see what the DPP’s conclusion based on the facts of the case,” Mr Varley said.

This is in relation to the death of a female, about 20-years-old, whose body was found at the Travellers Motel in Auki in December last year.

The cause of the death is still unknown and police are still continuing with investigations.

Police, as always, are urging relatives of the deceased to refrain from taking the law into their own hands whilst investigation is ongoing.
