Man arrested over double murder
The Ministry of Police has arrested a 24-year-old man in connection to a double murder in Leulumoega over the weekend.
Preliminary police reports indicate that the two deceased persons are relatives from Leulumoega and alcohol was a factor in the incident.
“They were found dead at the three-corner in Lefaga and the suspect took off in the vehicle, which was later discovered in Leulumoegauta.
“The murder suspect has now been arrested,” said the police officer.
The Police Deputy Commissioner, Papali’i Monalisa Keti, did not respond to emails and phone calls from the Samoa Observer to confirm the deaths at the weekend.
