Man Found Dead In A Pool, Shocks Community

The body of a man discovered floating in a pool in Cunningham, Suva, yesterday has been described as shocking and disturbing.

Mosese Lutunaugo, 25, told the Fiji Sun he was shaken when he received news from two children that a man’s body was found in a pool nearby.

Describing how he had managed to pull the dead body from the pool, Mr Lutunaugo said: “the children thought the body was a tube and threw stones at it until they saw that it was a man.”

“When the children came running and informed us, I informed a police officer in my neighbourhood.

“I went to the pool and saw the body before the police team arrived at the scene. The body looked to have been in the water for more than two days.

“It was hard to recognise the man. The body looked like it had recent burnt marks and bruises,” Mr Lutunaugo said.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said a team of officers from the Southern Division Crime and Forensic Units were investigating the discovery of the body.

Ms Naisoro said that around 1pm yesterday, a 15-year-old student residing in Cunningham was swimming with friends when they noticed a body floating down stream.

“As they swam closer they discovered the decomposed body of a man who is yet to be identified. Police were notified and are investigating the matter,” Ms Naisoro said.

The body of the man was yet to be identified when this edition went to press.
