David Reddy, a legal executive of Ram’s Law in Nadi, was laid to rest by family members yesterday at Transmitter in Nadi.

According to Police, Mr Reddy’s body was found floating in the Waidalice River in Tailevu, by a woman on Tuesday morning.

Mr Reddy was born in Transmitter, Nadi, and grew up with his parents and siblings just like any other child in the neighbourhood.

The 25-year-old is believed to have been completing his Professional Diploma in Legal Practice (PDLP) with plans to rejoin Ram’s Law as a fully-fledged lawyer from next year.

Mother, Savita Reddy said, “He took me and his wife to Suva last Friday after persuading me to tag along saying I’m always at home.

“Since I am always sickly, I did not feel like going, yet he insisted I come along so I did.

“We reached my other son, Andy Reddy’s house in Korovou last Friday night.

“Around 6.30pm last Saturday afternoon, he told me that he is going to drop a friend back in Suva so I told him to be careful on the road.

“I do not know when he returned from Suva that night. Last we spoke to him was 12.30am on Sunday morning. We thought his vehicle broken down or he had stayed back in Suva.

“In the morning, we were calling him on his mobile but it was diverted.

“After church we started to panic because he was still not back then I asked my son (Andy) to try and find out. Andy reported the matter to the Police on Sunday afternoon.”

It wasn’t until Tuesday morning that his body was found in the river by a woman.

“He was more than just a colleague, he was family, and we all are. In such a small firm, we were all very close and he was always the jester making everyone laugh,” Barbra Doton Jai, an associate at the firm said.

The victim was identified by his brother Andy Reddy at the Korovou Police Station.

Police have not ruled out foul play at this point in time as investigators await the post mortem.
