Tavua murder: Suspect arrested

The man wanted in connection with the murder of a 53 year old woman in Tavua has been arrested.

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Rusiate Tudravu says the suspect acts as a traditional priest and healer.

He’s currently in custody at the Tavua police station following this morning’s arrest.

Meanwhile, ACP Trudravu says people should be wary who they let into their homes.

“What we are just trying to advise the community at large is to know the people they allow in their family homes. They should be identified rather than just going about the need to get people in without properly checking whether that is the real person whom we want to come in and assist us.”

The 53 year old woman was found dead in a pool of blood inside her house in Tavua on Monday.
