Over 5 deaths in less than a week: Homicide

In less than a week, Port Moresby recorded at least six deaths.

The police homicide unit revealed that while two out of four female victims, including the late journalist’s case, had some hiccups, they were re-opened last week with the post mortem of journalist Rosalyn Albaniel Evara (October 25).  

That same day, another woman died on the spot at Manu Autoport at approximately 9am. This was around the same time the body of 23-year-old Tabu Airi, who went missing for four days, was discovered at the Treasury building at Waigani.

The bodies of two men and another woman were discovered in the early hours of Saturday morning (October 28); the bodies of the two men were found at Armani and Gerehu whilst the woman was found at Lawes Road, hanging from a rope.

Police believe all these cases are homicide and nothing can be ruled as yet, however there are leads into most of these cases and arrests will be made soon.
