Acting Police Commissioner, Fauono Talalelei Tapu, is disappointed that the start of 2015 has been marred by the deaths of four people who took their own lives during the festive season.
The first reported case was of a 51-year-old man from Lauli’i.
Fauono said the man died upon arrival at the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital. Doctors confirmed that he died from the wounds he inflicted to his chest.
“The stab wounds had punctured his heart causing his death,” said Fauono.
The other three cases involve a 28-year-old mother of Letogo. She committed suicide on Saturday 3 January.
