Late Journalist’s Case Done

The Police Homicide division has completed its investigation into the death of late Post Courier Journalist, Roslyn Albaniel Evara.

Officer-in-Charge (OIC) of the Late Rosalyn’s case, Sargent Nei Pige , said all witness statements have been collected, and the case will be filed and delivered to Coroner Mekeo Gauli, to deliberate on.

Homicide Division will be delivering Rosalyn’s file to the Coroner because police had found that there is no direct evidence from the case to be committed to court.

Sergeant Pige, said they will file the report for the Coroner, based on the two reasons that; the cause of death was undetermined and that there was no direct evidence or witnesses to prove that she was beaten by her husband before her death.

While Rosalyn’s death had sparked a wide range of discussions on suspicions of ongoing domestic violence at home, Sergeant Pige, said the bruises on her body and the missing tooth are not sufficient enough to start a case, as the body had already undergone embalmment, and that there was no actual witness during the times of violence.

The case will now be handed to Coroner who will call for the witnesses and people involved in Rosalyn’s case to come forward at the corona’s court to give evidence. If he finds that there is a case, Homicide will then be called to file the case in court.
