A father of three was killed on Saturday night at Vaimea.

The death was confirmed by a relative who spoke to the Samoa Observer on the condition of anonymity. They suspect that he was beaten.

“It happened as he was on his way home after night out at a nearby nightclub,” he said.


“We’re not so sure why they did this to him. We also don’t know where they (youth members) come from but.

“The matter has been referred to the Police and they are investigating.”

The relative said the man suffered from serious injuries to his face. He died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

The deceased man works for the Land Transport Authority.

“The news came as a complete shock to our family and we sorely miss him.”
