Fa’asisila family desperate for answers to 15-year mystery

    The parents of 13-year-old James William Faʻasisila whose body was discovered wrapped in a blanket three days later near the Union Pacific railroad tracks at Huntwood Avenue and Newhall Street, believe someone out there knows what had happened.

    On a miserable day in August 12, 1999 James was last seen riding with an older boy on a bicycle.

    Police had officially closed the case without being able to locate who killed or how James died.

    After 15 years, his parents Pauline and Tuʻineau as well as other family members and friends recently visited and laid flowers at the scene where James was found dead.

    James spent a month with his family in Tonga before they returned home in the United States where he unexpectedly died.
