Two people are dead after a man stabbed a woman early yesterday morning on the side of a busy stretch of road at Lalovaea. He then stabbed himself as she staggered across the road seeking help.
The woman suffered multiple cuts to her body. She was dead upon arrival at the Moto’otua Hospital.
The man also died minutes after he was brought in to Moto’otua.
The identity of the deceased man and woman could not be verified at press time.
Helen Papali’i, who lives across from Vaea Hotel, said she had just returned from the gym around 7.30am when she heard a woman screaming.
