Police have admitted they cannot catch the suspect into April-13 killing of a Chinese woman.

This is because they are not receiving help and assistance from the communities in East and West Kwaio.

Assistant Commissioner Crime and Intelligence Patricia Leta said police are lacking reliable information from the communities, as people are not willing to give information regarding the suspect who is currently at large.

“The case is our priority and we are still working to get the suspect to face justice,” Ms Leta.

She continues to call on communities in East and West Kwaio to support police in the search of the suspect.

This is regarding the killing incident which occurred this year on the morning of April 13 at the White Angel building.

The suspect was believed to have escaped when police started their investigation into the alleged murder incident.

Allegation said the 44-year-old Chinese woman left her house in the Ranadi area, east Honiara to drop off her twin sons at school in the morning and then went down to her shop inside the White Angel Building in Point Cruz to open it as normal.

While the shopkeepers were waiting outside for the deceased to open the shop, the husband of the deceased arrived and sought assistance from a nearby shop to open their shop as the doors were locked from inside. However, that was unsuccessful and police were alerted in which the Police Fire Service came to their assistance and opened the shop and that is when the husband discovered his wife lying on the floor with blood all over her body.
