Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua recently solved a multiple-murder case, but you haven’t seen coverage in the Samoa News (or heard it on KHJ). The murder case involved, among others, a tuna cannery executive, a Samoa News reporter, a local palagi attorney, a fight in the parking lot of a local nightclub, and a taxi driver who works out of the airport taxi stand.
Was the case kept quiet because drugs were involved? Was it corruption in the Department of Public Safety that made this case too hot to touch?
The cat is out of the bag now.
