Police Commissioner Matthew Varley

Police are continuing their investigation into the death of a 20-year-old woman at a motel in Auki, Malaita Province on Saturday.

The woman was found dead on Saturday evening in one of the rooms at the Travellers Motel after spending the night there.

Police Commissioner Matthew Varley said a post-mortem examination of the body has concluded, but police are waiting for further details from the pathologist to determine the cause of death.

“But at this point in time, I can confirm to you that there were no apparent injuries on the woman’s body┬áthat would be evident of a cause of death, so we are still investigating the reasons for her passing,” he said.

The death is being considered “suspicious” at this stage, which Mr Varley said is routine police procedure until a definitive cause of death is determined.
